    Our full Metrics that Matter series is now available for your viewing pleasure! We tackled issues of managing goals, addressing audience awareness and choosing the right media metrics for your organization.

    We also hosted a Twitter chat on the subject of metrics that matter to newsrooms. You can check out the Storified chat here.

    Our series concluded with a couple of case studies, one on the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting, and one that more broadly covered the state of media coverage around breaking news.
