Can the News be Saved? The Shifting Model for Journalism

The appetite for journalism is stronger than ever, but the way we get our news is changing rapidly. The Internet offers us a flood of information and opinion, while crucial stories go underreported and traditional media continues to shrink. New non-profit journalism ventures have helped fill the gap, but are they the answer? How do they fit with the evolving media landscape?

On October 1, 2012 the Food & Environment Reporting Network’s Editor-in-Chief Sam Fromartz will be participating in a panel in New York City on the ways in which journalism is evolving. Moderated by WNYC’s Leonard Lopate, the panel will also feature Stephen Engleberg, the Managing Editor of ProPublica, a Pulitzer prize-winning journalism non-profit, and Felix Salmon, who is the finance blogger at Reuters and has written extensively on the future business and economics of news media.

Where: Tompkin’s Square Library (331 East 10th Street, Near Avenue B)

When: 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., October 1, 2012
