Monthly Luncheon - From Black and White to Bits and Bytes: Atlanta Journal-Constitution Editor Kevin Riley Shares Insights on The New Age of News

Registration: 11:30 am; Lunch & Program: Noon - 1:00 pm

The business of gathering and reporting news has undergone massive change in this decade, and while some outlets have struggled to adapt, others have evolved to become more relevant and accessible. No longer limited by print deadlines or a one-hour nightly broadcast, news is reported all day, every day, both by professional reporters and citizen journalists.  In this landscape, news outlets are required to build a new kind of relationship with readers, competing with myriad voices that are vying for their trust.

At the August monthly luncheon, Atlanta Journal-Constitution Editor Kevin Riley will explore this new age of news, and how technology and reader engagement has made ours a smaller, better connected world. Register early for the annual media-focused luncheon to learn how public relations practitioners can adjust, assist and influence producers, editors and reporters in a 24x7 cycle.

Speaker: Kevin Riley, editor, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
