Topic: What’s next for Journalism?

Ever increasing numbers of people are turning to digital media formats for news and information. What comes next for journalism, and how are existing and new players adapting? What does it mean to your business? Martin Nisenholtz former Senior Vice President of The New York Times, will guest host October’s #pivotconchat and discuss the following:

  1. The managing editor of the Huff Po says that journalism is no longer about reportage but about the discovery of information that is already out there somewhere. What are your thoughts?
  2. There was a report this week that said “every individual is an editor in chief” in the sense that we all can create and distribute content and, in so doing contribute to our own brand. What’s your view?
  3. What do you think of the concept of citizen journalism? What’s the role of the professional in a time when every eyewitness can become a reporter on site?
  4. Is the future of journalism in pictures? Cell phone captures? Pinterest patterns? Data visualizations? Infographics? Are words receding to the background?
  5. If you were creating a journalistic enterprise today from scratch, what would you do?
