Media Invitation - Journalism is Dead; Long Live Journalism: How the web is
reinventing journalism

Limited number of seats reserved for working media

TORONTO, Sept. 15 /CNW/ -

    
    There are a limited number of seats reserved for working media wishing to
    cover the sold-out Canadian Journalism Foundation event tonight in
    Toronto, "Journalism is Dead; Long Live Journalism", featuring Rem Rieder
    and Ira Basen.

    Event Description:

    There's no debate that journalism is in the midst of an alarming
    transition. Newspaper circulation figures, advertising revenues, job
    openings and journalists' wages have been in a downward slide for several
    years. At the same time, the internet has given birth to new forms of
    journalism. Green shoots are emerging in the form of online news
    gathering and reporting, the rise of social media, citizen journalism and
    crowdsourced news. This is where the debate begins. What will these
    changes mean for democracy? Is there a business model for quality
    journalism? And what will the jobs of the future look like?

    Join Rem Rieder, editor and publisher of the American Journalism Review,
    in conversation with Ira Basen, CBC writer and producer of "News 2.0: The
    Future of News in the Age of Social Media", as they explore these
    questions and more.

           -  Rem Rieder, editor and publisher of the American Journalism
              Review;
           -  Ira Basen, CBC writer and producer of ""News 2.0: The Future of
              News in the Age of Social Media"

    WHERE: Innis Town Hall, University of Toronto, 2 Sussex Ave.
