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.
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.
