The Overseas Press Club will be hosting a book night with Quinnipiac University School of Communications dean Chris Roush to discuss “The Future of Business Journalism: Why it Matters for Wall Street and Main Street.”
The event will be Oct. 11 at 6 p.m. EST. Registration is here.
Business owners, consumers, and employees have long relied on the news to make financial decisions ― what to buy, who to hire, and what products to sell. In the twenty-first century, that news has shifted. Only the big businesses and executives can afford expensive subscriptions, while most consumers and small business owners are left scrambling to find the news they need to succeed and thrive.
In “The Future of Business Journalism,” veteran business journalist and professor Roush delves into how the crisis occurred, from the disintegration of the once-strong relationship between businesses and media to the media’s focus on national coverage at the expense of local news. He reveals how these trends result in major “coverage deserts.”
Registrants will receive a link to join the Zoom call about an hour before the program on Oct. 11.
