The next HVCA – ThinkTech luncheon is on Thursday, October 24th, 2013. The topic is “NewsMorphosis III Online – is online news doing its job? A superlative industry panel will discuss the current condition and evolution of news organizations serving our community, with special emphasis on online news.
We’ll inquire into how online news is working; how it can be improved; who is entering the field and by what new methods and technologies, including social media; the business models involved; the sources and quality of the news they are publishing; who is viewing and consuming that news; how the public is reacting to these new methodologies; whether they are being adequately informed on important issues; and how this is likely to change in the future.
Our moderator for this program will be Howard Dicus, news maven at Hawaii News Now and Hawaii Public Radio. Jerry Burris will make opening remarks.
Our blue ribbon panel consists of:
• Patti Epler, Civil Beat/Huffington Post Hawaii
• Jared Kuroiwa, KHON2
• Steve Petranik, Hawaii Business Magazine
• Malia Zimmerman, Hawaii Reporter
• David Shapiro, Honolulu Star-Advertiser
