Why wasn’t I quoted? Who wrote that headline? Is your deadline really in one hour? On June 16, 2021 SciLine, a program of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), will host a virtual "Ask a Reporter Anything" event, inviting scientists from all disciplines to hear from and ask questions of reporters and editors representing a range of media outlet types, including local, national, print, radio, and specialty science publications. Reversing the usual press briefing model, journalists will be in the hot seat, fielding questions from scientists and sharing their perspectives. In a conversation moderated by SciLine, attendees will learn how day-to-day journalism really works, what a day in the life of a reporter looks like, and the professional expectations and challenges reporters face when covering science-related issues.
