USC Marshall After Work Series: A Conversation on Journalism
Tuesday, October 22, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Please join us for a discussion on entrepreneurial journalism at our October ‘After Work Series’ event led by USC alums Meghan Stettler, Erica Berger, and Callie Schweitzer.
From the evolution to the commercialization, we go behind the scenes to discover what led up to the challenges facing television news today and what stations are doing to combat the decreasing reliance on old forms of media, including what makes Al Jazeera different. Additionally, all three women will discuss their roles as leaders in the evolving media landscape, followed by a panel discussion.
Meghan Stettler specializes in cross-platform media with nearly ten years experience in broadcast news, online and social strategy. She's currently a producer for Al Jazeera America's nightly news broadcasts.
