Right after Labor Day, former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson will make her first non-commencement-address stage appearance since being booted from the Grey Lady. As part of a Thursday September 4 Re/code Code/Media series event.
From co-producer Peter Kafka’s note:
You may not be familiar with [Meredith] Valiando Rojas. But there’s a good chance your kids have been to one of her shows, or want to go: she’s the CEO of DigiTour, the Live Nation for the Web video generation, which puts on sold-out concerts featuring YouTube and Vine stars. And if that seems odd to you, that’s just fine with her: Ryan Seacrest and Conde Nast’s Advance Publications are already believers.
You most definitely know Abramson, the former executive editor of the New York Times. And there’s a good chance you’ve heard part of the story about her departure from the paper last spring. Now you can hear what she has to say for yourself.
To register for the event, go here. The admission fee is $100.
