NewsTECHForum: How News Will Look In ’22
News executives and analysts will take a longer-term look at what the post-pandemic industry is apt to look like in a panel, News 2022: The Reshaping of Programming, Technology and Audience, capping off TVNewsCheck’s NewsTECHForum event in December, held virtually this year.
The panel features Catherine Badalamente, SVP and chief innovation officer, Graham Media Group; Lora Dennis, SVP digital, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations; David Friend, SVP of news, CBS Television Stations; and Seth Geiger, president and co-founder, SmithGeiger. Frank Mungeam, chief innovation officer at the Local Media Association, will moderate, and the session will take place on Dec. 18 at 2 p.m. ET.
“Given the changes we’ve seen through the pandemic, news, news workflow and audience development will likely all look very different in two years’ time,” said TVNewsCheck Editor Michael Depp. “Catherine, Lora, David and Seth have always been forward-looking executives who can see better around the next corner than most, and Frank, a longstanding news futurist himself, is the perfect person to guide that conversation.”
NewsTECHForum will also feature sessions on Novel Approaches to News Storytelling Under Stress; Pivoting the Newsroom to Crisis; How Will Digital and Streaming Storytelling Evolve in 2021?; Advances in IP and Cloud Workflows; Remote Production: From Exception to Option; and Standing Out on Social in a Historic Year.
Attendees will participate in the live, daily, two-and-a-half-hour streamed sessions on Zoom Webinar, where they can pose questions to speakers, participate in live audience polling and wrap up the day with half-hour, open-mic Roundtables on key issues.
Before, during and after the conference, attendees may also network, submit suggested questions for speakers, chat about issues, browse virtual exhibits and set appointments with sponsors by downloading the TVNewsCheck Events app from the Apple or Android stores. App users who have registered for NewsTECHForum also have the option of watching the programming’s live stream on the app.
