Colombia: New digital challenges on mobile journalism
From August 2-4, 2022, USAGM and VOA Spanish offered a mobile journalism training to more than 30 journalists from Caracol Television network in Bogota, Colombia.
VOA Spanish international broadcaster Celia Mendoza and VOA Managing Editor Gesell Tobias offered the training at the Caracol facilities to members of the Alianza Informativa Latinoamericana (AIL), and six journalists from other media affiliated with USAGM also participated.
At the end of the course, participants did their own reporting on the streets of the Colombian capital. Some of the works were broadcast on the television network.
The course has served as a model to be implemented by USAGM in other affiliates in the region.
