University of Nebraska–Lincoln College of Journalism and Mass Communications hosted the Associated Press Media Editors’ NewsTrain, on Saturday, April 9, 2016.

"APME brings in top-notch trainers with national reputations to conduct sessions on the latest media trends and technologies,” said CoJMC Professor Sue Burzynski Bullard. “When I was a newspaper editor, I found NewsTrain sessions extremely valuable for my staff. I think journalists in our region will find that true in our workshop too.”

More than 100 journalists, educators and students spent a day digging deep into using social media, reporting with data, and covering news on multiple platforms.

Newhouse Foundation and APME past and present board members.

The Nebraska Broadcasters Association and the Nebraska Press Association co-sponsored the event with the College of Journalism and Mass Communications.
