“TV news reporting can’t stay handcuffed to all of its old storytelling conventions if it wants to find new audiences,” Depp said. “Matt, Michael, Christina, David and Stephane are leading the way with rebooted approaches to news’ standard vocabulary, and emerging digital technologies are helping them to do so. This panel will share samples of their work and delve into how they’re framing out new approaches that are already resonating with audiences.”

The panel will run from 9 to 9:45 a.m. on Dec. 17.
