UTS Journalism hosts esteemed industry Q&A panel
An industry Q&A panel discussing the disruption of broadcast journalism, attracted industry professionals, students and academics.
Hosting the event and Senior Lecturer of the UTS Journalism Program, Belinda Middleweek, spoke with industry leaders Kylie Merritt (YourMoney), Michael Pell (Channel 7), Justin Stevens (ABC 7:30), Alexi Baker (Channel 9) and Sarah Yassien (SBS).
Discussing key journalistic tenets such as; audience insights, engagement, content marketing and production, attendees were provided valuable advice on how to manage digital platforms and broadcast journalism.
We invited industry leaders to UTS to discuss the major disruptive forces posed by the digital transformation of the media industry, and clearly many other industry professionals were interested as well. We were delighted that Paul Wallbank (Mumbrella), Debby Ng (YourMoney) and Flip Prior (ABC) also came to listen – and put their questions to our guests.
