Conversation on the Future of Journalism with Andrew Lack and Rebecca Blumenstein

On June 6th, Aspen Institute’s Walter Isaacson sat down with Andrew Lack, Chairman of NBC News and MSNBC, and Rebecca Blumenstein, Deputy Managing Editor of The New York Times to discuss the future of journalism in a difficult financial and political climate. Both Andrew and Rebecca  noted that media coverage has changed since the election and consumers are beginning to realize that they may need to pay for truthful and factual news. With both organizations thriving under media scrutiny, the New York Times added 300,000 new subscribers in the first quarter; and in the fourth quarter of last year added more than the entire 2012 and 2013 combined.

The event took place at Hunter College’s Roosevelt House, and is part of the Leadership Series in memory of Preston Robert Tisch sponsored by Steve Tisch, Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch, and the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund. Watch the full conversation here.
