Gina Martino Dahlia will be the speaker. She is a teaching associate professor, the Journalism chair at the WVU Reed College of Media and the GM for the reporting project, 100 Days in Appalachia.

Dahlia will explain why it’s important to integrate this technology into reporting and how you can become a pro at delivering the news using Facebook Live.
