Future of News grapples with journalism's future

fonAmerican Public Media and Minnesota Public Radio are sponsoring a meeting focused on the Future of News. You can watch a live stream here.

From the intro:

The decline of journalism in America is reaching the point of crisis. Newsrooms around the nation are shrinking while the need for high-quality, objective news, information, analysis and insight has never been greater.

The Future of News summit is an interactive day-long discussion that will define the role regional organizations play in the solution to the news crisis. Local, regional and national leaders—in journalism, commercial and public media, government, business and philanthropy—will contemplate the design of a new model for regional journalism and a path to restoring the independent and robust fourth estate America requires.
