Media Disruption: The New Normal

Tuesday, October 8, 2013 at 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street, Room I202, New York, NY 10011

In recent months, traditional media has seen more than its share of game-changing events, particularly in the field of journalism, with the New York Times selling off the Boston Globe for a fraction of its purchase price just a few years ago, Amazon's founder snapping up the Washington Post, and little-known BT Media taking ownership of Newsweek. In the wake of these and other changes, many are pondering what it all means for the future of journalism.

This discussion will include:

 - Martin Nisenholtz, senior advisor, The New York Times; and adjunct associate professor, Columbia Journalism School; former senior vice president, Digital Operations, The New York Times.

 - Ben Smith, Editor-in-Chief, Buzzfeed

 - Elizabeth Spiersacting editorial director, Flavorpill Productions; former editor-in-chief, The New York Observer 

 - Shafqat Islam, co-founder and CEO, Newscred

Moderated by J. Max Robins: contributor, Techonomy Media; former vice president and executive director, Industry Programs, The Paley Center

Sponsored by The School of Media Studies and The Center for Communication.
