Good Society Forum: The resurgence of traditional media during COVID19

May 6 @ 1:00 pm

The coronavirus health crisis has brought renewed focus – and hope - to ‘traditional media’ – newspaper, radio and TV. With millions staying at home because of the travel restrictions, demand in established outlets has surged. More audiences are tuning in to traditional media outlets, according to recent surveys. But how long will this last? Has this health crisis overturned the ongoing survival crisis for traditional media? The Good Society Forum brings together four media professionals to look beyond ratings and explain the opportunities and challenges for ‘traditional media’ outlets highlighted by this global pandemic. Please join us for a webinar panel hosted by Emma Sky (Director, Yale World Fellows) and Nizam Uddin (Senior Head of Mosaic and Community Integration, The Prince’s Trust, and 2019 World Fellow). Our panelists are: Emma Graham-Harrison: Senior International Affairs Correspondent at The Guardian and Observer. Monika Halan, Consulting Editor with Mint in India (2011 World Fellow) Vincent Ni: BBC correspondent (2018 World Fellow) Raymond Mujuni: Editor with the Nation Media Group in Uganda. The Good Society Forum is a community of change-makers around the world with a common quest to build the good society. Launched in April 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Good Society Forum Webinars digitally connect change makers around the world, engage them on ideas, and inspire action to build the good society.
