Media Disruption: The New Normal
Tuesday, October 8, 2013 at 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Theresa Lang Community and Student Center (Room I202), Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street
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 Spiers, acting 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
