Newsplex

MolineMoline Dispatch journalists Dan Makarewicz and Todd Mizener work on a project during a week-long convergence training session in Moline, Illinois.

Midwestern Newspapers Turn to Newsplex

Journalists at three Midwestern newspapers owned by the Small Newspaper Group are gaining new media skills, thanks to on-site Newsplex training.

In the second week of February, Newsplex travelled to Rochester, Minnesota to meet the staff of the Rochester Post-Bulletin to discuss convergence and how to reorganize their newsroom.

Two weeks later, the staff went to Moline, Illinois to visit the Rock Island Argus/Moline Dispatch. Those who took part in the training sessions learned how multimedia journalism helps to tell a better story online than just words.

The training wraps up in May with a week-long session in Kankakee, Illinois at The Daily Journal.
