Public Safety and the Media

We were honored to have Kevin Landers from WBNS 10 TV join us for this episode. Our goal with the episode is to dispell some of the preconceived notions that sometimes exist between public safety personnel and the media.

Kevin explained what happens behind the scenes when breaking news occurs.  We discussed how he gathers information, plans interviews, and works with the editors in the “news room” to produce news stories that are timely and accurate.  Kevin also explained that the media has a desire to work with public safety officials acting as a resource to get important information to the public.
