Homberg explains that they involved Wayne State University due to its top-notch journalism program, its convenient location, and its willingness to work together.

The summit is planned to be a dynamic and interactive event, filled with opportunities for learning and exchanging ideas. The schedule for both days is packed, so attendees are advised to be well-prepared.

Homberg emphasizes the importance of collaboration in journalism, especially in the current context of smaller newsrooms and budgets. He believes that working together, sharing resources, and uniting platforms are key to producing impactful journalism.

“We believe the upcoming Collaborative Journalism Summit is another important step in this direction as journalists share ideas, learn from one another, and form new connections and partnerships.”
