Supporting the growth and transition of community journalism

Supporting the growth and transition of community journalism, The Walter Potter Sr. Conferences conducted by the Reynolds Journalism Institute provide an essential forum to allow community news organizations to share their problems and to present their triumphs with an audience of their peers.

In October 2011, RJI brought together dozens of publishers and editors for “Community Newspapers: Tomorrow has arrived.” In a jam-packed two days, participants covered mobile, paid content, digital lessons from the Joplin, Missouri, tornado, making money in the digital age, community newspapers and the Web, social media, engagement and much more.

The Missouri Press Association and veteran community newspaperman Walt Potter Jr. sponsored the event in honor of Walt’s father, Walt Potter Sr. Walt Jr. was so excited about the opportunities to share information among smaller community news operations that he continues to support and advise RJI on developing additional opportunities for community news operations.

This portion of the Potter Forums features announcements about upcoming events in the Potter Conferences series, as well as other events of interest to community news organizations sponsored by Potter and RJI. It also features information gleaned from past conferences and events.
