Journalism and the Web@25: Notes from Poynter’s Digital Media Panel

web25

It’s hard to believe the World Wide Web has been around for a quarter century. Many industries have been impacted, and the media industry is no exception.

“The Web has rocked our world, and we’re still feeling the aftershock today,” said Barbara Raab, program officer with the Ford Foundation.

I recently took a trip to the Ford Center for Poynter’s “Journalism and the Web@25” event. The audience, which was packed with media and communications professionals in all stages of their career, listened intently as an all-star panel of journalists provided their insight into the past, present, and future of media.

The panel, which was moderated by Poynter President Tim Franklin, consisted of:

  • Rob King: ESPN’s senior vice president, SportsCenter and News
  • Brian Stelter: host of CNN’s “Reliable Sources” and senior media correspondent for CNN
  • Melissa Bell: co-founder of Vox.com
  • Kathleen Carroll: executive editor and senior vice president of Associated Press
  • Jeff Jarvis:  founder of media and news blog BuzzMachine.com and professor and director of the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at CUNY Graduate School of Journalism

Sam Kirkland, Poynter’s digital media fellow, provided an in-depth look into the topics discussed during this lively discussion. You can read Kirkland’s full recap as well as watch a replay of the discussion here: 8 digital media lessons from Poynter’s ‘Journalism and the Web@25’ panel.
