Kneeland2GO Video Library
For more than a decade, The Kneeland Project has trained local news directors in all fifty states, providing real-world hands-on training to the to journalists on the front lines of local television news. We change lives and we improve the quality of local news gathering, one news director at a time.
Yet, each year, we have to turn many journalists away because we simply do not have enough funding. Additionally, news directors who attend the program often ask us to help them share the lessons learned at Kneeland with their newsrooms.
KNEELAND2GO is an answer to those challenges. We have created high quality training videos that you can share with your newsrooms during weekly meetings or brownbag lunches. Now you can “take Kneeland home” with you to share, refresh and revitalize.
Our Fellows have told us that this project will make a difference. In a recent online survey, 100% of our participating Fellows told us that they shared Kneeland’s lessons with their staffs when they returned to their newsroom after the conference. And, in a nod to the potential power of Kneeland2Go, 100% of them told us that they would use modules like these in their newsrooms. We want to take these lessons far beyond the four walls at Kneeland.
“Simply put, it’s the best conference I’ve ever attended. The intensity and focus are incredible.”
“The Kneeland Project not only prepares you to be a better news director, but also gives you the plan to make it happen.”
“It was a life-changing experience I will always take with me.”
“Not only do they give you the tools you need to change your every day at the newsroom, they show you and challenge you to do it. Kneeland will help you find that work-life balance we all crave.”
“The Kneeland Project is a must for newsroom managers. The information is presented in an in-depth way. It is a life-changing experience.”
“The Kneeland Project far exceeded my expectations. I was challenged daily to rethink every step of being a newsroom leader. I was surrounded by some of the brightest minds in the business in a positive and collaborative environment. I also walked away with practical steps to push me to become a better leader the second I walked back into my newsroom. I will lean on both the knowledge I took with me and relationships I made from the Kneeland Project for the rest of my career.”
“I came here with high expectations because so many people I respect cherish this experience. Now I understand why: this is life-changing. I am completely blown away by the staff, the sessions and the group of news managers. These lessons and relationships will be the cornerstones as I build on my career. Thank you!”
