UMNEWS News media ownership discussed at forum

In light of recent news on possible sale of Knight Ridder Newspapers across the country, the University of Miami and the Society of Professional Journalists will co-sponsor a forum to discuss News Media Ownership on Feb. 10 at 11:15 a.m. at the School of Communication courtyard.

The forum will include discussions on whether a new model of ownership could protect newsrooms from the investor imperatives that are forcing this sale. Participants for the forum include Douglas Arthur, newspaper analyst at the Wall Street firm MorganStanley; Bob Ingle, former head of Knight Ridder new media and former executive editor of the company’s San Jose Mercury News, and Robert G. Picard, founder of the journal Media Economics and professor of media management at the Jonkoping International Business School in Sweden.
