Believe it or not, we have just one PPRS meeting left this calendar year! After we’ve enjoyed a couple of months off, please join us on September 28, as we discuss The State of the Newspaper – and Other Media. Our speakers will be Dennis Owens, news anchor at abc27, and Cate Barron, Executive Editor at the Patriot-News and Vice President of Content at PA Media Group.

Dennis and Cate will share their experience and personal outlook on the evolving nature of the media as a whole, including a huge shift in newspapers – as we know – to focus more on digital content. Among other topics, we'll discuss:

  • ​The fate of the traditional newspaper and its implications; 
  • The impact of the evolving Digital Age on broadcast media;
  • How print and broadcast journalists work together, and how that has shifted over time; and
  • Dennis and Cate's overall outlook for the future of media and journalism.

Mark your calendars for a great meeting on September 28!
