Your Press Pass Through History: On the Scene with The Associated Press

October 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$35.50 – $150

The Beatles performing on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” The Challenger exploding in the sky. Tom Brady celebrating his seventh Super Bowl victory.

We’ve shared these moments because the journalists of The Associated Press captured history in the flash of a camera. Now’s your chance to go behind the scenes of these iconic images — and the historic events underway today — with an all-access pass to the work of the AP.

You’re invited to join the Poynter Institute at the Straz Center on Oct. 11 for an immersive, multimedia-rich evening with the award-winning journalist and newsroom executive who helps call the shots on history’s first draft.

Julie Pace, AP senior vice president and executive editor, will take you inside one of the world’s largest newsrooms in an exclusive conversation moderated by Poynter President Neil Brown.

Be prepared to:
– Step into the shoes of legendary AP journalists and learn the stories behind the events that have shaped our lives.
– Challenge your perspectives with an understanding of what it takes to be a journalist on the front lines of breaking news, from Ukraine to Uvalde and beyond.
– Grab the mic and ask Pace questions in a town hall-style Q&A about issues facing the news media today.

Tickets start at $35.50. VIP guests will enjoy hors d’oeuvres and premium cocktails during a private networking reception with Pace and other business executives in Tampa Bay who support journalism’s critical role in a democracy.
