Covering Cuba: The pitfalls, challenges, risks & rewards for journalists covering one of the hemisphere’s most intriguing stories

The historic improvement of ties between the U.S. and Cuba has touched off a whirlwind of changes: improved contacts, easier travel to the island for U.S. citizens, reopening of embassies in Havana and Washington.

Journalists, meanwhile, have sprinted to keep up with and document the changes between these former Cold War foes. Long barred from freely reporting on the island, reporters from all over the world suddenly find themselves with Cuban visas covering these historic changes. But it hasn’t been without its challenges. What restrictions (self-imposed or otherwise) still exist? What are the logistical challenges? What’s the inside story in Cuba not making it onto news sites or TV broadcasts? 


In this session, attendees will learn:


-          Challenges – both logistically and editorially – of covering Cuba.

-          Insights from journalists covering Cuba about direction the communist island is headed.

-          Tips on how to get in and out of Cuba.

-          What journalists are learning about Cuba not making it into newscasts.
