Future of Journalism panel audio

As promised, I’m embedding the audio from the “Future of Journalism” panel discussion held last Wednesday at EIU.

Panelists were: Will Sullivan of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch/STLToday, John Foreman, publisher of the News-Gazette of Champaign-Urbana, Ill. and Nancy Foreman, executive producer at WCIA-TV3 in Champaign. Jeff Lynch, interim dean of the EIU College of Arts and Humanities moderated.

My apologies in advance for the quality of the audio, which was recorded from the audience, not from the sound booth. As you can tell from the discussion, I had several disagreements with John Foreman about the value of online journalism, citizen journalism, and hyperlocal content.
