Journalism is Dead; Long Live Journalism
How the web is reinventing journalism

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.

There is no cost to attend, but guests must register (see link below). After the presentation there will be a Q&A with the audience followed by a cocktail reception.
