Going Local or Going Niche: New News Opportunities
October 4, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$15 – $25
Where some see pitfalls in the media business, others see opportunity. So it is with Village Media, which is expanding its hyper local Ontario online news sites across smaller cities during a general decline in community newspapers. So it is, too, with media startup The Logic, a subscription news site that explores an area that deeply affects our lives—how the innovation economy impacts us and the implications of the emerging technology that surrounds us. Join us for this overview of the media landscape and how both established and new players are helping to reshape it.
Join speakers Jeff Elgie, CEO of Village Media; April Lindgren, Velma Rogers Research Chair and principal investigator for the Local News Research Project at the Ryerson School of Journalism; and David Skok, CEO and editor-in-chief of The Logic, in a conversation led by Sonya Fatah, editor-in-chief of J-Source and assistant journalism professor at Ryerson University.
Doors open 6pm | Discussion 6:30pm | Reception 8:00pm
