Our heartfelt thanks to all of you who attended last night’s COLab/Denver Press Club panel on newsroom burnout. We had a terrific audience, both live and remote.
We are grateful to our panelists Selyn Hong of NPR, CU Anschutz’s Dr. Marc Moss, Denver Post reporter Elizabeth Hernandez and Colorado Politics ME Linda Shapley. Each offered much food for thought. Also, a special thank you to Open Media Foundation’s Brandon Stiller, who conquered the challenge of a hybrid panel and made sure all went smoothly.
If you were not able to attend, do not fear, you can watch at your leisure.
- Adam Grant’s podcast, which Linda urged upon us.
- Gallup study on burnout. Good stuff here. Thanks to ONA for flagging.
- Finally, if you don’t follow Chalkbeat’s Susan Gonzalez (@TheNewsan) on Twitter, you should. Here’s her tweet thread from last night’s panel. She’s candid, funny, and fearless when talking about her own mental health.
We just scratched the surface last night and are seeking ideas to continue the conversation, so reach out to COLab’s Tina Griego, if so inspired. We also had more questions than we had time and are working up a post-panel Q&A for distribution. If you have questions for the panelists that didn’t get answered, now is your chance to ask. Send those to Tina, too.
If you are a Colorado journalist but not yet a COLab member, please sign up (for free) to stay in the Colorado newsroom loop. If you are a member of the public or a journalist not working in Colorado, consider signing up for our newsletter. Likewise, we hope you will consider joining the Press Club. It’s the oldest in the country, an institution and a tradition worth supporting.
Again, thank you all. We’re grateful to be part of this community.
