On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
In late June, a gunman opened fire on the newsroom of The Capital Gazette in Annapolis, leaving five people dead: Rob Hiaasen, Wendi Winters, Gerald Fischman, John McNamara and Rebecca Smith.
In the aftermath of another American mass shooting –-and one targeting journalists in particular– we asked those working in D.C., Maryland and Virginia how they feel about their personal and workplace safety.
Our Survey Findings
This non-scientific survey was shared on-air, circulated over social media and pinned to our website from Tuesday, July 3, through Monday, July 9. More than 150 journalists from the Washington region and beyond responded. Below are several graphics that share our main takeaways. Hover over the images for more detail.
How Journalists Are Feeling After Annapolis
We asked journalists how they’ve been doing since the attack on The Capital Gazette’s newsroom. Do journalists in our region feel safe where they work? How would they assess their mental health since the shooting?
This is what they said.
Many Washington area journalists feel safe at work, but emotionally they're anxious and sad, according to an informal survey conducted after a mass shooting in an Annapolis newsroom.
