To Do

From the release:

    Research tells us that more Americans are getting their news online and that fewer people are reading daily newspapers and watching nightly network newscasts. Last year nearly 18,000 employees of U.S. media companies lost their jobs, the largest personnel cuts since the dot-com bubble burst in 2001, according to Broadcasting & Cable. What does this tell us about the quality of journalism today? What are the future prospects for those currently in the field and those now studying to become part of it? The Kalb Report – The Future of Journalism will bring together top executives from broadcast, print, and online media organizations to discuss what lies ahead for the field of journalism. The discussion moderated by Marvin Kalb will feature Ann Marie Lipinski, senior vice president and editor of the Chicago Tribune, Sean McManus, president of CBS News and Sports, Cliff Sloan, publisher of Slate and vice president of Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive, and Paul Steiger, managing editor of The Wall Street Journal and vice president of Dow Jones & Company.

    “Our subject is ‘The Future of Journalism,'” said Kalb. “What better, more important topic for journalists and those interested in the profession to discuss during these troubled times? I am honored to host this panel and can’t wait for the discussion to begin.”

    The Kalb Report – The Future of Journalism will take place on Monday, March 5, 2007, at 8 p.m. in the National Press Club’s Main Ballroom (National Press Building, 14th and F streets NW, 13th Floor
