I was on a panel on Friday, April 12 at this excellent convening at the University of Pennsylvania on two of my favorite subjects, journalism and work. Specifically, I was part of the discussion on Perspectives on the Future of Local Journalism.
This panel considered what a truly public media system might look like. Practitioners and scholars who focus on issues related to local journalism such as organizing newsrooms, democratizing communication infrastructure, and creating media institutions that are owned and controlled by journalists and local communities.
