Mark Robison on Local Government Reporting
It's the last episode of Season 4 of Renoites! Thank you so much for listening, I've been thrilled with the guests we've been able to feature and really appreciate all the support from listeners and the community. Renoites will be back with new episodes in January, but in the mean time we'll still be doing bonus live tapings at Black Rabbit Mead so stay tuned (follow on Instagram @Renoites!)
This week on the show Conor is joined by Mark Robison, the local government reporter for the Reno Gazette-Journal. Mark has a long history with the local newspaper, spending most of his career reporting here in Reno, and has recently returned to the work after a few years away. In his new role as local government reporter, he has been tasked with covering the government and politics issues that matter most to our area.
On this episode, Conor and Mark talk about the differences between this new position and a normal staff reporter role, the impact of national news on local attitudes, the effect of Twitter on political discourse, the strategy of intentionaly treating all sides fairly and with respect in reporting, local races to watch in the upcoming election, and much more!
