The New New Media: What It's Like Running and Working for Journalism Startups

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Journalism sites like BuzzFeed, Vox and Vice attract millions of eyeballs and are scooping up talented journalists. It's both a highly rewarding and risky time to be in the industry. Hear from editors and reporters about what it's like working for a nontraditional news company. They'll discuss how they're reaching new audiences, building teams and coverage from scratch, adapting to business models that didn't exist 10 years ago, and — in some cases — reinventing how news is presented. They also will share their thoughts on where the industry is heading — and how diversity fits into that future.​
