Media Advisory - CJF J-Talk Journalism, Disrupted: How to Create Media Innovation
TORONTO, Jan. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian Journalism Foundation presents its upcoming J-Talk Journalism, Disrupted: How to Create Media Innovation on Thursday, January 31 at the TMX Broadcast Centre in Toronto.
New tools, devices and technologies have proven to be powerful in reshaping journalism, whether in content distribution and consumption or the newsroom structure itself. With the Canadian government committing $400 million to fund early stage venture capital start-ups, could this boost the spirit of journalistic innovation? What, exactly, does media innovation look like?
Join Zach Seward, senior editor at Atlantic Media's device-centric business news venture Quartz, Michael De Monte, CEO of ScribbleLive; David Skok, director of digital for Global News and moderator Marissa Nelson, acting director of digital media for CBC News and Centres, for this discussion on what traditional media companies can learn from tech start-ups and how a spirit of innovation can be fostered within newsrooms.
