Anatomy of a Pulitzer Prize: Dissecting The Seattle Times' breaking-news coverage of the Lakewood police shootings

The Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce is proud to bring some of the top business leaders in the region to our new program, the Executive Speaker Series.

Join KING-5 anchor Lori Matsukawa for the Executive Speaker Series inaugural event with The Seattle Times Executive Editor David Boardman, Managing Editor Kathy Best and Managing Editor Suki Dardarian for a close examination of The Seattle Times' award-winning coverage of a community in crisis.

The panel will discuss the stronger journalism that results when news organizations employ both traditional and emerging tools and techniques. In dedicating its expertise to breaking news, investigative reporting and around-the-clock reporting using digital and print media, The Seattle Times set a new standard for community service. People throughout the region turned to The Times for information, perspective, insight and comfort as the shocking crimes were followed by a two-day hunt for the gunman.

This behind-the-scenes exploration will offer a glimpse into how the community can benefit when a premier news organization blends tomorrow's storytelling technology with enduring values of public service during a traumatic time.
