Event Focuses on the Evolution of Media

Please note that this is not a CAABJ event. But it is an event we think our members would benefit from attending.

Ink Starved: Millennials and the Evolution of Media

Man can't live on ones and zeros alone, but millennials seem determined to forego the nourishment of ink on paper in favor of digital media. Are they ink starved or digit hungry? How will newspapers and journalists adapt to this generation's preferences? Is this new media trend as prevalent in Charlotte as in other markets? Who will be the innovative leaders that help media adapt?

Join the discussion with Charlotte's leading publishers. Presented by Engage Charlotte, an affiliate of the Charlotte Chamber.
