Over the past decade, technology has driven profound structural changes in news audience behaviours, as people consume information about current events in a wide-ranging variety of places and forms. These changing behaviours precipitate changes in production and distribution of news, with journalists and others collaborating in the news-production process in unimagined ways. In this public event, experts Alex Watson (Telegraph Media Group), Kim Schrøder (Roskilde University) and Philip Napoli (Rutgers University), will present the latest on transformations in audience and how technological innovations in journalism and publishing are at once responding to and advancing these changing needs. Retha Hill (Arizona State University) is the discussant. Ryerson School of Journalism professors Gavin Adamson and Asmaa Malik will moderate the panel.
