RTDNA 2017 Conference in Toronto

For news broadcasters, the story doesn’t end when it’s published or aired. It’s just the beginning for their audiences, who are looking to discuss their diverse opinions around a shared reality.

That’s just one idea that will be explored at the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) 2017 National Conference. Taking place from May 26 to 27 at the Sheraton Centre in Toronto, the conference offers a forum for open discussion on the issues that impact Canadian newsrooms. It’s also a great opportunity for career development and connecting with leaders in news media.

This year’s topics include:

  • Connecting with highly-skeptical and mistrusting audiences
  • Combating the fake news epidemic
  • The responsibility of journalists to reflect diversity in the newsroom
  • Encouraging audiences to constructively debate their diverse opinions
  • Knowing your audience and monetizing it
  • Using investigative journalism to grow audiences
  • The future of news radio

Encouraging Diverse Opinions with Civil Commenting

If you’re interested in driving audience engagement and civil comments on your website, we encourage you to attend Commentary, Commenting and Diversifying Your Voices on Friday, May 26 at 1:45 PM.

The panel discussion features leaders from Canada’s top news media organizations—Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), The Weather Network (Pelmorex Media), Global News and Corus Radio. Our very own Head of Marketing, Allison Munro, will also be there moderating the discussion.

Together, they will be exploring the best way to encourage diverse commentary in an age of trolling and online attacks. Attendees will learn the value of commenting for their journalistic approach, audience relations, and their bottom line. In addition, they will hear how these industry leaders moderate and protect their online communities without draining their resources.

“Canada is rich not only in the abundance of our resources and the magnificence of our land, but also in the diversity and the character of our people.”
The Will of a Nation: Awakening the Canadian Spirit—George Radwanski & Julia Luttrell
