"Enterprise" reporting is highly desirable in many media companies and local entities around the country as news managers look for exclusive stories their competitors are missing. These managers and reporters seek fresh ideas that can become stories that both highly promote their brand and are very appealing to viewers, listeners and readers.

There is a wealth of information that has gone underreported or just unreported in the recently completed U.S. Census. Among the unreported subjects that are expected to emerge as a hot button issue after the mid-term election is redistricting and how our main political parties will be affected by the results of the recently completed U. S. Census. Redistricting will have a significant impact on the 2012 elections as well as current and future elections to the U.S. House of Representatives.

To learn more about this subject and develop enterprise ideas, please join the NABJ Media Institute webinar, "Deciphering the Numbers: The Untold Stories of Redistricting.” This free webinar will be held on Wednesday, December 15th at 11:00 a.m. (EST) and will feature Anita S. Earls, Executive Director, Southern Coalition for Social Justice and Charles Robinson, Correspondent/Associate Producer, Maryland Public Television, NABJ Region II Director.  

The webinar will explain the impact of redistricting on voting patterns and ultimately our system of government. In addition, the discussion will also explain the numbers behind re-districting and how to disseminate accurate and insightful information without hyperbole that will serve media consumers, news managers and journalists. 

Among other questions that will be discussed:

What congressional and and state voting districts might be affected in a way that could dramatically alter voting patterns?          

Could there be new allegations of gerrymandering, controversial public hearings and lawsuits that delay the implementation of the new Census?   

This webinar is for journalists serious about improving their ability to capture unique content for their organizations and the eventual dissemination of information that could help journalists develop new stories and hence a more explanatory way of news reporting. News managers, producers and especially local reporters are highly encouraged to attend.
