In 2015 the Museum will produce a new track within our Revolutionaries series, "Re/New: The Future of News." Technology is changing everything about the news and journalism industries—from gathering to processing to disseminating, and audience behavior and participation as well. This track will feature a series of conversations with news leaders and innovators about that changing landscape.
"Re/New: The Future of News" will kick off with a conversation with KQED President & CEO John Boland and NPR President & CEO Jarl Mohn. Boland is re-inventing KQED on a local and regional level and setting a new generation of news in motion on television, radio and the internet. Mohn, who has headed NPR for less than a year but has significant media experience, plans to extend and deepen broadcast and digital news at NPR. Together they represent some of the best thinking -and action – about the future in either commercial or public media.
Tonight’s program will be an in-depth conversation with these outstanding executives about everything from their beginnings in media, the history of their organizations, how their approach to journalism is evolving, technology’s impact on what they do, and the changing nature of digital audiences. Our moderator, John Hollar, began his career as a reporter, so he’s well suited to conduct an insightful and engaging conversation with these two media mavericks.
This event is part of the Museum's acclaimed Revolutionaries speaker series, featuring renowned innovators, business and technology leaders, and authors in enthralling conversations often with leading journalists. Our audiences learn about the process of innovation, its risks and rewards, and failure that led to ultimate success.
Please Note: This Revolutionaries on the Road will take place in KQED’s Studio A in San Francisco. Because seating in the studio is extremely limited, the program will be invitation-only. It will be available on our YouTube channel within a week. And, KQED Radio is recording the event and will broadcast it on Saturday, April 18 at 2pm, and again on Thursday, April 23 at 8pm.
