RevLab in The Texas Tribune launched in 2019 to share proven strategies that support, sustain and grow the news business. And now we join some of the best in business who are just as passionate about maintaining journalism as we are. RevLab has partnered with LION Publishers and the News Revenue Hub to host our first independent news sustainability summit in Austin from October 27 to 29 with the support of the John C. and James L. Knight Foundation.
The last two years have brought both incredible challenges and new opportunities for independent news organizations. At this first summit, which is expected to be an annual event, representatives of independent news and journalism support organizations will come together to share lessons learned on what it takes to be sustainable and new ways to which we all reach to the audience, manage capacity and show our impact. The summit will be modeled on the LION Sustainability Framework for three areas of programming: financial health, operational resistance and journalistic impact.
Participants will leave with tools, resources and the best advice in the industry on how to operationalize sustainability for their own work. RevLab will share lessons from the Tribune newsroom and welcome attendees to the Tribune office in downtown Austin. Meeting guests can also look forward to attending the annual LION Awards Ceremony and the dinner, which recognizes excellence in local independent journalism and other networking opportunities for attendees.
The Independence News Sustainability Summit is designed to focus on how to preserve and sustain public journalism, a mission that is more important than ever for American democracy. We are committed to organizing an event that is friendly, respectful, safe and inclusive. We are excited about the discussions and ideas that will arise from this event.
We look forward to welcoming you in person and online at the 2022 Texas Tribune Festival, our multi-day celebration of big, bold ideas for politics, public policy and news of the day – all just steps away from the Texas Capitol in September. 22-24. When tickets go on sale in May, Tribune members will save a lot. Donate to join or renew today.
