"Digital First" is the latest buzzword in the news business. But what
does it really mean for the future of news?
Please join a nitty-gritty conversation with two executives who are
building Digital First futures for their print companies: John Paton,
CEO of Digital First Media (and CEO of Journal Register and MediaNews) and
Justin Smith, president of Atlantic Media.
Jeff Jarvis, director of the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial
Journalism at CUNY's Graduate School of Journalism, will question both
men and lead a discussion with the audience drilling down to the
specifics of how they are executing their strategies, covering
content, revenue, costs, staffing, and the transition. Paton and Smith
are the talk of the industry as they build bold new strategies for
news and content.
The program begins at 6 p.m. sharp on Tuesday, November 1st at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, 219 West 40th Street (between 7th and 8th Avenues), NYC. Plan to stick around for wine and more conversation following the event.
