October 9, 2014 – The McGraw Symposium/The Rise of Digital Native Sites: How The New Players Are Reshaping Business Journalism
The McGraw Center for Business Journalism at the CUNY J-School will hold its first McGraw Symposium in conjunction with the SABEW's annual fall conference. Come hear Henry Blodget, CEO and editor-in-chief of Business Insider, Kevin Delaney, co-founder and editor-in-chief of Quartz, and Walt Mossberg, co-executive editor of Re/code discuss the rise of digital native news sites and how the new sites are reshaping business journalism.  We’ll look at why such sites are growing rapidly, what their strengths — and weaknesses — are compared with traditional media, and most importantly, what does their increasing popularity mean for business journalism?
WHEN: October 9, 2014, 6-9 PM

WHERE: CUNY Graduate School of Journalism

Tickets for the opening night reception and the McGraw Symposium can be purchased on SABEW's 2014 Fall Conference 2014 site on SCHED.org. For further information, contact mcgrawcenter@journalism.cuny.edu.
