Organizer/AuthorAndrea Buffa
Everyone is talking about the future of the newsroom in this new digital world where young people get their news from YouTube and Facebook, and traditional print journalists have seen hundreds of their brethren laid off or bought out. Join us for a discussion of how these changes are affecting journalists. What can media workers’ unions do? Should journalists hurry up and learn how to blog and podcast before it’s too late?

Featured speakers:

*Jeanne Carstensen, Salon.com Managing Editor
*Louis Freedberg, California Media Project Director and San Francisco Chronicle former editorial writer
*Luther Jackson, San Jose Newspaper Guild Executive Officer
*Matt Mansfield, San Jose Mercury News Deputy Managing Editor

Sponsored by the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and UC Berkeley Center for Labor Research and Education, with the East Bay Press Club, Northern California Media Workers Guild, San Jose Newspaper Guild and Society of Professional Journalists NorCal Chapter.
