We’re happy to announce the launch of MATV’s citizen journalism program. Our Neighborhood View project, armed with three seasoned journalism mentors including coordinator Sam Baltrusis (pictured), trains and supports local citizen journalists to cover subjects and issues in their own neighborhoods.
Being a journalist today means doing it all. Reporters shoot video. Photographers report. There will be a meet and greet kick off on Monday, March 31 at MATV starting at 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m. to sign up new citizen journalists and to help get the team started. After signing up here, learn the basics of journalism and what it means to be a reporter in today’s multimedia world in our three-class Journalism 101 workshop starting Tuesday, April 8 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
