How Innovative Publishers and Platforms Turn Challenges into Opportunities
It’s been an especially turbulent time for the news business. Vice bought Refinery29.
Vox bought New York magazine. Pacifica shuttered WBAI in NYC. G/O Media pulled the plug on Splinter. And that’s just in the past two weeks!
At a time when digital media and online news ventures struggle to persevere through cost-cutting, consolidation and closures, we’ve invited editors and executives from CNN, Medium, Quartz, Teen Vogue and Columbia Journalism Review to talk about how publishers and platforms are innovating to revitalize the industry and create new opportunities for journalists. Join us at 6:30pm on Oct. 16 at the SVA Theatre.
