New Journalism for a New Public

Presenter: Mark Scott, AO

The future of journalism is already here. For media businesses, the challenges of changes to audience behaviour and profitability come at the same time as the miracle of distribution - the many new ways for content to be shared in a mobile, social, multiplatform world. The fate of many media companies will depend on how they deal with this shift in power. The public has never been more involved, opinionated, informed or questioning - and journalists have never been more accountable. Mark Scott will talk about the implications of these developments for today's media, for journalism and for the ABC.
