The coronavirus pandemic quickly showed newsrooms that many of the things we considered to be rules were just assumptions; and that we’re capable of far more transformation — faster — than we thought. What crisis-forced innovations should stick? Which of the myriad workarounds should become the new, standard newsroom workflow? Frank Mungeam shares insights from news leaders and audience research.

Speaker: Frank Mungeam is the Knight Professor of Practice for TV News Innovation, and leads the collaboration and experimentation arms of a unique three-part project to promote local TV news innovation through research, collaboration and experimentation as part of a John S. and James L. Knight Foundation initiative to innovate local TV news. Mungeam previously served as TEGNA’s vice president of digital audience engagement with a focus on digital innovation, strategic partnerships and best practices to engage audiences on digital and social media platforms. 

Mungeam graduated with honors from Harvard University with a degree in psychology. He also has a Masters in Communication and Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University. Mungeam has taught courses on digital and social media as an adjunct professor in the Creative Media and Digital Culture Program at Washington State University and has authored two books.
