Katy Katopodis will be joining the Gauteng branch of the South African Freelance Association to talk about her amazing experiences in covering news stories, in particular the Oscar Pistorius trial.
How does Katopodis select nuggets of insightful information and go beyond reporting the facts to delivering the broader news story, even as it continues to unfold? How does she adapt the information to hand for dissemination on radio and television versus print?
Her book ‘I’m Missing News’ delves into the demands of covering breaking news whilst trying to maintain a balance between her work and personal life.
All are welcome to join Safrea for this intriguing and exciting chat with Katopodis so book early as the association is expecting a great response.
