Claudia Rowe, The New Front Page: 21st Century Journalism and What It Means for You
Veteran reporter Claudia Rowe will lead a conversation about the current sea change in journalism,
sharing stories from her experiences at various newspapers across the country. At one of those papers,
editors refused to cover the disappearance of several local women; such reporting would have exposed
a thriving street-prostitution trade and reflected poorly on the region. Through this prism, Rowe will
discuss what can happen when financial imperatives direct news judgment – exactly what is happening
in newsrooms across the nation today. She will challenge us to consider our own role and responsibility
in this new media landscape. Is the role of journalism to provide stories that we want to hear or news
that we need to hear?
