“Such a great day of learning for our team,” said Altice USA vice president of digital Chris R. Vaccaro, who sought Poynter’s expertise to establish workflows for broadcast journalists and their new digital colleagues. “We will undoubtedly turn much of what [Poynter managing editor Ren LaForme] offered into useful action for the sake of our local news coverage. Ren’s delivery was smooth, on point, engaging and he obviously puts a ton of time into preparing for these visits and educational sessions.”
