See the Press Release below:
The Fort Collins Coloradoan is celebrating 140 years as Northern Colorado’s biggest news and information source. As the organization charts a course for the future, the next big leap is in partnering with the community to explore the nature of communication in the digital and post-digital eras and how people keep itself informed in today’s landscape.
To help facilitate a discussion between the media and the community, the Coloradoan is hosting a seminar, “The Future of Information,” at 6:30 p.m. May 1, in the Coloradoan Community Room at 1300 Riverside Ave. in Fort Collins.
This seminar will be moderated by the Coloradoan’s executive editor, Josh Awtry, and consist of 6 local media panelists: Paul Berry, engagement editor for the Coloradoan, Grace Hood, reporter for KUNC, Kristin Mastre, professional blogger & founder of The Scoop Blog Network, Nick McGurk, northern newsroom reporter for 9News, Tregg White, station manager for Northern Colorado 5-TV, and Jerd Smith, editor for NCBR. Panelists will field questions on how information will be disseminated over the coming years, what technology does to our relationships with one another and the overall landscape of community journalism in the 21st century. The panel will take audience questions and comments as we seek to understand and solve the complexities of the modern media landscape.
