Topic: Behind the Scenes at KUT with Host Jennifer Stayton

Join Freelance Austin for our next meeting on Wednesday, February 12, as we take a behind-the-scenes look at KUT. From the newsroom to recording studio, host Jennifer Stayton will lead us on a tour, concluding with a discussion on how to pitch stories to the media and increase your chances of getting coverage.

With more than 20 years of experience as a radio broadcaster, Jennifer has worked in both public and commercial radio as a host, newscast anchor, interviewer, news reporter, DJ, producer, writer, editor, news assignment coordinator, delivery and speech coach, intern supervisor, and (briefly) salesperson. Jennifer is a member of Women Communicators of Austin and serves as a WCA Mentor.

Parking is limited so please consider carpooling. There are meters and two pay parking garages nearby at 2420 San Antonio St. and 109 W. 27th St.
