Our next luncheon program August 25, 2011 - News media in a free society, what has it become?

 The news delivery business models are changing.  This meeting will tell you what you need to know to profit from these changes if you are an entrepreneur or investor and what to expect if you are just into the news.  Join us as we revisit this topic

Join us for a two panel extravaganza about the changing face of news in America.

The first panel, moderated by Steve Petranik, will address whether the reporting and commentary by Hawaii's news media is properly reaching and informing the public, and will feature Chris Conybeare of the Hawaii Media Council, Jim Dooley of Hawaii Reporter, Barbara Tanabe of Hoakea Communications, Kyle Tanouye of Talisman LBS, and Lucy Young-Oda of the Star-Advertiser.

The second panel, moderated by David Tumilowicz, will address how changes in consumer preferences, technology and costs will transform the news media over the coming years, and will feature Kevin Bumgarner of Pacific Business News, Rick Blangiardi of Hawaii News Now, Jeff Coelho of Salem Communications, John Temple of Civil Beat and Leslie Wilcox of PBS.
