The Future of Local News: Trust, Truth, and the Bottom Line
Monday, May 8, 2017
Program: 2:00 to 5:00 pm
Reception: 5:00 to 6:00 pm
All journalism, like all politics, is local. But what does it mean for both when the local news business is in retreat? What is the way forward, given the lessons from the 2016 election about the importance of vibrant local reporting? Please join The Paley Center for Media and the Columbia Journalism Review for an in-depth look at the state of local news in America at a time when its future—as a growing, thriving, democratic institution—has never been more critical.
