Award-Winning Legal Affairs Correspondent to Conduct Workshop for NYFA Broadcast Journalism Students

April 25, 2014

truTVFor more than a decade, Grace Wong has covered dozens of high-profile court case. Working first for Court TV, then for CNN’s sister network truTV, on Friday, May 2 she brings her expertise to the New York Film Academy.

Grace is an expert in a field with a number of unique challenges. First and foremost, you have to explain the circumstances and the personalities involved in a specific case. Next you need to put this particular case within the context of a complex legal system. Then you must communicate what happened in court on a given day, and how it fits in with the testimony and evidence that preceded it.

Now, do this every day for a month…

Grace Wong will make a formal presentation, including samples of her work, and then will participate in a Q&A session. The workshop will be moderated by Emmy Award-winning news producer Bill Einreinhofer, the Chair of the Broadcast Journalism department.

The class starts at 10:00am, and takes place on the Battery Place campus. Current, former and potential NYFA students are invited to attend.
