On April 15, a select group of media pros are taking part in a panel discussion hosted by CNW. The event is dubbed "Breakfast with the Media – The Multimedia News Evolution." Digital Journal will participate in an analysis of where media is heading.
In the morning of April 15, CNW will host a breakfast event featuring experts from a few of Canada's leading media outlets. Joining the panel are Digital Journal CEO, Chris Hogg; Anjali Kapoor, Managing Editor, Digital at the Globe and Mail; and Sarah Millar, Web Editor, The Toronto Star. The panel is moderated by Carolyn McGill, President and CEO of CNW Group.
The panel will look at why multimedia is now essential for delivering news with impact and how media is changing. The new Newsroom is a world where radio stations need photos and newspapers are asking for video. Social media and “traditional” news outlets such as radio, broadcast and print are competition online. News has evolved and for communications professionals that means multimedia such as videos are no longer a nice-to-have, but a must-have.
The free event takes place at Bram & Bluma Appeal Salon at the Toronto Reference Library on April 15. Breakfast and registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and the event starts at 8:00 a.m.
Since 1992, CNW has hosted its Breakfast with the Media event that brings together public relations and communications professionals, journalists, editors, photographers and finance experts.
