Center for the Arts in Society Media Initiative Discusses News and New Media

Center for the Arts in Society Media Initiative Presents:
New Media/News Media: How New Media are Changing the Aesthetics of the News

New media forms have been devastating for the economic subscription model on which the print news industry was based. Thousands of journalists have lost their jobs and hundreds of papers have shuttered their doors forever. But what about the aesthetics of the news today? How are new media changing the form-and even the artistry-of the craft? And what do industry insiders see happening on the horizon?

Join us for a discussion with:

.      John Allison, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette opinion editor
.      Deanna Garcia, Essential Pittsburgh Radio reporter
.      Maria Lupinacci, award winning blogger and media watchdog
.      Tony Norman, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette columnist
.      Chris Potter, Pittsburgh City Paper editor
.      Martha Rial, Pulitzer Prize winning photographer


Wednesday, February 15   4:30 p.m.
