Every year, the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism conducts an annual report on American Journalism. This one-hour Webinar explores key findings of the 2011 report.
The Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism gathers in one place as much data as possible about all the major sectors of journalism, identifies trends across media, marks key findings, delves deeply into each sector and notes areas for further inquiry. We cover some of these key findings in this Webinar.
What Will I Learn:
- Who is the digital news consumer and why is this audience important?
- After another down year, how are newspapers preparing for the road ahead?
- Why do networks still do news?
- What are the factors in the cable equation?
- Where does local TV fit in community news?
- What’s the future for newsweekly magazines?
- Are cracks appearing in traditional radio’s armor?
