In a world disrupted by technology and global shifts, truth and quality journalism have never been more important. While legacy media brands work to adjust, new models for journalism are emerging. From projects built on collaborations that span borders and media organisations, to newsrooms funded by philanthropy. A common thread of this brave new world is public interest journalism, where the bottom line is less about dollars and more about impact.
In a conversation presented by the Walkley Foundation and the University of Sydney, hear from special guest Robert J Rosenthal about how some of these new models are working in the US. Robert will be in conversation with Alice Brennan, the Pulitzer Prize-winning executive producer of ABC’s Background Briefing; with the discussion moderated by the University of Sydney’s Gerard Goggin. Don’t miss this timely insight into the power and importance of public service journalism and the new culture underpinning it.
This event was held on Thursday 6 September at University of Sydney.
