While “citizen journalists” can immediately broadcast breaking news to millions of people through blogs, online communities, free podcasts and webcasts, how do traditional media outlets compete, both from an editorial and business perspective? This Thursday, April 5, the Canadian Journalism Foundation asks (and attempts to answer) the question of journalism’s place in a wired world.
Join Mathew Ingram, Business and Technology Columnist for the Globe and Mail; Mark Evans, Operations VP of b5media inc.; Hugh Dow, President of M2 Universal media planning and buying, and moderator Amber MacArthur, New Media Specialist for CityNews at the Robert Gill Theatre, University of Toronto (214 College Street, 3rd floor) from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for a panel discussion, with a reception to follow. This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, so if you plan to attend please register at [email protected] or visit the website to register online.
