The upheaval and disruption of legacy media outlets by new media and tech platforms shows no signs of slowing. While more people around the world are consuming news than ever before, the cost and effort involved in producing real, high-quality news has never been higher.
In this ever-changing digital landscape, The New York Times led the way, becoming a different kind of media company — a nimbler, faster, more reader-centric company – that people around the world are prepared to pay for.
How has the digital revolution altered the playing field? What should media companies do to tailor their strategies to reach their customers? What opportunities and challenges have these changes brought to The New York Times? Mr. Dunbar-Johnson will address these and other issues at the Chamber's seminar on 27 February.
Moderator: Prof Cherian George, Professor, Director of Centre for Media and Communication Research, Department of Journalism, Hong Kong Baptist University
