The Next Big Thing in Journalism: Follow the Data

Wednesday, December 9, 2015
8:00 to 11:00 am
New York

Good data journalism is good journalism — journalism that unveils deep truths and helps people navigate their lives. But for more and more news organizations, it is also good business. Entire startup news organizations are now predicated on data while legacy media organizations are actively investing in data products.

Join us for a high level breakfast with top journalism, technology, and education leaders as we examine the exciting innovations in data journalism that are transforming the way the media reports and consumers access and understand the news.

Presented in partnership with:
