Free webinar for Ohio journalists: Follow the political money

Ohio investigative journalist James Pilcher will lead a free webinar for ONMA members on how to follow the millions of dollars spent in Ohio to elect politicians and advocate for causes. But having the data isn’t enough. Pilcher also will teach you how to turn this content into great stories. He’ll offer ideas and examples that work for news organizations of all sizes and specifically focus on Ohio’s laws regarding campaign finance and disclosure.

With a major election coming in November, our June 28 webinar will be a timely way to develop stories that are relevant for local readers throughout the summer and fall. Newsrooms may wish to register as a group so that discussion can follow the program, which will begin at 10 a.m.

Pilcher is an award-winning journalist at Enquirer Media in Cincinnati who has conducted past webinars for the Ohio News Media Foundation. He is a nationally recognized expert on data journalism who also teaches a class on that subject at the University of Kentucky.

Although the webinar is free, advance registration is required. The webinar will be in a GoTo Meeting format, and registrants will be able to ask questions with ample time for Q&A.
