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.
