For years, news media were the gatekeepers to the public agenda. Anyone hoping to shape the debate on a given issue had to pitch stories to journalists, submit occasional op-eds, and hope for impact. But the current media revolution is turning the tables: Audiences now demand deeper coverage of complex stories at the very moment when media have fewer specialized staff to deliver it. Agencies that know how to help news media cover a public issue – and who can undertake those collaborations responsibly -- are now in a better position than ever to engage the public. Robert Steiner, Director of the Munk School Fellowships in Global Journalism and former AVP of communications for the University of Toronto, will share five good ideas for non-profits that want to create new collaborations with media.
