Public invited to forum in Richland on news gathering

By the Herald staffApril 7, 2014 

Traditional news gathering, reporting and consumption have changed dramatically in the past decade, thanks in part to such disruptive forces as the Internet, social media networks and the economy.

What is the future of news media in the Tri-Cities? Find out at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at a forum that will include representatives from the Tri-City Herald, KNDU-TV, KONA radio and the Tri-Cities Journal of Business.

The forum is free and open to the public and will be in the East Auditorium at Washington State University Tri-Cities. It will be moderated by Andy Perdue, a longtime Tri-City journalist with almost 30 years of newspaper experience.

It is sponsored by Leadership Tri-Cities, the Columbia Basin Badger Club, the William O. Douglas chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and WSU Tri-Cities.

Tri-City Herald is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
