About the Program

Join PRSA and local experts for a panel discussion on the rise of fake news in public discourse today and the role of the media and the PR industry in restoring truth in the news.

Our panel includes:

•    Paige Mudd, editor, Richmond Times-Dispatch;
•    Tom Mullen, a public affairs journalism professor at University of Richmond;
•    David Kleeman, Board V.P. serving the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE)

Judi Crenshaw, APR, will serve as moderator.

The panelists will discuss the fake news phenomenon, and how it impacts newsrooms; and share perspectives on how PR professionals can maintain truth in news.


Vegetable Lasagna with warm rolls and tiramisu for dessert. A choice of salad, with or without meat, is also available. Make your selection when registering, and be sure to pick up your salad ticket upon checking in for the luncheon if you choose that option.
