Primer on Station Legal Rights Upcoming

Community media organizations increasingly find themselves facing a variety of legal questions and issues related to their programming. Join us for a webinar examining the legal issues your outlet may encounter and resources to support you.

Supported in part by funding from the Facebook Journalism Project, this session will be led by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, with Shannon Jankoswki, the E.W. Scripps Legal Fellow; Kamesha Laurry, Borealis Racial Equity in Journalism Fund Legal Fellow; and Sarah Matthews, Senior Staff Attorney at RCFP. They will cover topics related to newsgathering torts, protests, recording rules and resources that RCFP has to offer as well as answer your questions about community radio stations and their coverage.

Whether it is seeking public records or understanding their rights and responsibilities or the arrests of journalists, community radio stations and producers tackle many issues. Join us Thursday, June 24, at 4 ET to visit with the nation’s foremost leader in defense of media.

This event is open to NFCB member stations. If your member station needs an invitation, or if you’re not a member yet and wish to join, contact NFCB now.
