Howard Weaver Lecture

2007-10-02 by

Howard Weaver, former Anchorage Daily News editor and current vice president for news for The McClatchy Company, visited the University of Alaska Anchorage on Friday, September 21 and presented a lecture entitled Information Saturation: Sustaining a place for journalism in a ubiquitous media world.
Weaver’s lecture evaluated mass media in transition – how the norms of yesterday (mass circulation newspapers, licensed monopoly broadcast stations, etc.) have given way to an unsettled present and uncertain future. “Information” clearly has been transformed; is the same true about what we call “journalism,” the process of sorting, filtering, verifying and prioritizing? Perhaps equally important, what does the changing economic landscape, which tends to separate advertising revenue from news content, mean for the future of news gathering?
This lecture was brought to you by the University Honors Program.
