The question of how to produce and disseminate high quality news reporting while attaining financial stability and making the most of what digital technology has to offer is perhaps the most pressing question facing journalists today. Many of the new outlets are successful in one of these areas but not in all three. Anya Shhiffrin has been working to assemble a large data set of international online news initiatives around the world to see if there are discernable points in common and to understand patterns of success and failure. She plans to present initial results on see how high quality sites are financed, how they are staffed and managed, what kind of information and news they provide and come to an understanding of what it takes for these innovative news sites to grow and endure. Chuck Lewis will moderate and offer his observations from more than three decades of work in the nonprofit sector on how high quality journalism has been sustained and could be sustained.
