Governors Square 14
Activity: 
Journalism and Public Media

American public media is at a turning point, pulled between old broadcasting models and new ways to serve the public in the digital age. Cutbacks at commercial news outlets have made public media more important than ever, and across the country people are shaking up the status quo and reimagining public media’s role in our communities. So can we reshape the noncommercial media system we already have or do we need to start anew? This session will feature a lively debate, pitting visions of old and new and exploring how innovation, advocacy and accountability can create a stronger public media system.
