The Future of News - The Knight Media Forum: Livestream Feb 26-27, 2019

As Beyond the Headlines rolled out in communities across Wisconsin, we heard community members identify their need for strong, trustworthy, local media to help make sense of state and national policies or events, and bring people together around local news and events. With local newsrooms shrinking and news deserts expanding, the risk to democracy is evident. Beginning at 8:15 am watch the livestream of the Knight Media Forum carried by Detroit Public TV as panelists grapple with the future of news in our new media landscape. Featured Speaker: David Brooks - 11:30-1:00pm (CST)

We thank The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this initiative and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership.
