Nashville Public Radio “Covering Music City” Monday, April 25
The role of the journalist changes quickly and constantly. Today’s journalists must adapt to multi-media audiences — print, broadcast, digital cable and the Internet.
Anita Bugg has been with Nashville Public Radio since 1995, serving as Morning Edition host, assignment editor and news director. Today, she will moderator a conversation with Journalists Chas Sisk and Blake Farmer to talk about the challenges and opportunities of covering Music City.
Chas Sisk joined WPLN in 2015 after eight years with The Tennessean, including more than five years as the newspaper’s statehouse reporter. Chas has also covered communities, politics and business in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C.
Blake Farmer is WPLN’s assistant news director, but he shuns as much management responsibility as possible because he’s a reporter at heart. Education, military and religion stories have been focus areas of his coverage.
