Where do you get your news? On your phone? Facebook? The Daily Show?
The explosion of media options has profoundly affected how each of us gets our information. It has also brought dramatic changes to media companies old and new.
Amid these changes, how do newsrooms decide what to cover? What are the most effective ways for companies to tell their own stories? And what does this all mean for Miami as a media hub?
The Miami Herald is bringing together top media executives and experts to help answer these questions on Feb. 28 with a CEO Roundtable live conversation that is open to the public.
Our topic is the changing media landscape and what this means to your business and the Miami economy. Media executives will discuss how their own strategies are changing as a result of audience habits, and how that affects content and coverage. A second panel of practitioners — an advertising executive, digital marketer and brand strategist — will discuss their strategies around spreading the word.
The event will be held at the offices of The Miami-Dade Beacon Council, 80 SW 8th St #2400. Tickets cost $25 and can be purchased at bit.ly/2HeiJ5G.
The agenda and speakers noted below are subject to change.
