Local T.V. Meets Global New Media: A Real-Time Interactive Session between New York and San Francisco

The emergence of new media platforms and consumer’s interactive behaviors have made the local television market a different landscape, where news is now fed from online broadband channels, created by local consumers, and distributed throughout a wider, and more eclectic network of advertisers, journalists, and producers. Each location will have 4 panelists representing both traditional and new media, discussing the merging technologies and their personal experiences as they forge ahead in this ever-changing industry. Both audiences will have an opportunity to view the live bi-coastal panel discussion and participate in a question and answer session with both panels.

• Shoba Purushothaman, President, CEO and Co-Founder, The NewsMarket
