Toronto - On Friday September 27, Digital Journal CEO Chris Hogg will join a panel of journalism specialists to discuss the future of online news, as part of Toronto's Social Media Week conference. The talks runs from 11 a.m. ET to 12:30 p.m.
As the event is described, some of Canada’s leading journalism entrepreneurs "will tackle the hottest and most controversial topics surrounding the future of news in a rapid-fire style panel discussion meant to inform and entertain."
On the panel, Hogg will join Wilf Dinnick, founding editor and CEO of OpenFile, and Chris Tindal, Director of Project Development at Postmedia, working on the Postmedia Labs Initiative, where he develops startups within the framework of a bigger organization.
"I'm looking forward to discussing challenges and opportunities and sharing insight into journalism's fast-changing online environment," says Hogg. "The world of media changes fast and so it's helpful to discuss what we've all learned from change, what's more hype than useful development, and what trends are likely to stabilize as as everyday practice."
Hogg is the co-founder and CEO of Digital Journal and under his leadership the news network has grown into a leading content platform involving tens of thousands of content producers in 200 countries and millions of readers per month.
With a Bachelor of Journalism degree from Ryerson University, Chris began his career in media with Digital Journal magazine when he joined as a freelance journalist. He quickly climbed the editorial ranks and at 21-years-old he was named Editor-in-Chief, making him the youngest in Canada to lead a national publication.
Most recently, he also co-founded /newsrooms, a content marketing and social media network that provides content, coverage and conversion for brands across Canada and the U.S.
The panel, moderated by Ben Peterson, co-founder and CEO of Newsana, a social news startup, will take place at the Courtyard Cafe in Toronto's Windsor Arms Hotel. The event is free, but you must register here in order to attend.
If you can't catch the action in person, you can follow the talk on Twitter via the hashtag #smwfuturenews. Also, @futureofmedia will be live-tweeting the panel. Coverage will begin at 11 a.m. ET on Friday morning and end at 12:30 p.m. ET.
Social Media Week features sessions with industry leaders, panel discussions on a variety of topics, hands-on master classes, and social events focused on digital culture.
