Local editorial gatekeepers and reporters will share their thoughts on building relationships and survival in today’s challenging media atmosphere in this round table discussion. Hear how their newsrooms work, stories they most like to cover and their perspective on connecting the dots between PR and media.

Confirmed panelists include:

  • Matt Evans, KMBC
  • Sam Hartle, KSHB
  • Keith Chrostowski, The Kansas City Star
  • Mark Davis, The Kansas City Star
  • Marc LaVoie, KMBZ

Then, we’ll cap off the hour during the last 20 minutes with a media relations version of the popular show Shark Tank. This is your opportunity to pitch these journalists directly in our first official “Pitch Tank.” Have some fun in a win-win atmosphere. Craft your most authentic, engaging pitch, and give it a try. We all know it’s tough and competitive out there in media relations land! Food and one beverage will be provided with the cost of one ticket.
