Two excellent business journalism events next week
If you happen to be in the Columbia area next week, we have two excellent business journalism events lined up as part of the University of South Carolina journalism school's I-Comm Week.
Both are in the new Ernest Hollings program room at the Thomas Cooper library on campus. They are free and open to the public. (And if anyone in the Columbia media wants to cover Leder, I will arrange some face time afterward.)
Thursday, Oct. 7 12:30-2p
Michele Leder, founder and editor of footnoted.com gives the inaugural Baldwin Business Journalism Lecture. Footnoted takes a closer look at the fine print in all those SEC and related filings and finds some amazing nuggets buried in the small type.
Friday, Oct. 8 noon-2 p.m.
A panel on today's business journalism, "Inform, Investigate or Advocate: Today's Approach to Reporting" sponsored by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. Panelists: Bob Bouyea, Columbia Regional Business Report; Beth Hunt, American City Business Journals; David Millstead, freelance financial journalist; and Andy Shain, The (Columbia) State.
Candy Crowley, Rita Cosby and Jamie McIntyre are among the others slated for events during the week. See the link above for the full schedule.
