The Future of Media

Tuesday, December 8, 2020 | 3:00-4:15pm, Hawaii
Wednesday, December 9, 2020 | 9:00-10:15am, Singapore

Although “The Future of Media” is a topic that has been around forever, it has taken on a whole new meaning with the Covid-19 pandemic. Drastic drops in ad revenue have led to layoffs and closures, while misinformation and attacks on journalists and press freedom have grown. On the other hand, there is “evidence of stronger community investment in journalism and increased audience engagement in reporting,” according to the Journalism and the Pandemic Project"These comparatively optimistic findings may be key to reimagining postpandemic journalism as a more mission-driven and audience-centered public service."

report by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism found an increase in news consumption during the pandemic and an "accelerated move to digital media and mobile media and various kinds of platforms…a ray of hope may be that increasing numbers of people are willing to pay for news online."

This webinar will feature media experts and innovators speaking about how journalists and news organizations can best prepare/transform themselves to succeed in a post-pandemic media environment by cutting reliance on advertising, building community-focused media, developing new journalism and entrepreneurial skills, and following different career paths as jobs start to bounce back. As the hope of vaccines accelerates our thinking about life after the pandemic, journalists should not miss this important program!
