News & Print Media – What Does the Future Hold?

Zoom Webinar
November 3, 2021
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Rob Devincenzi - Publisher, Marin Independent Journal
Bill Nagel - Publisher, San Francisco Chronicle

Marin Coalition is pleased to present two key leaders in our regional news market for a timely discussion about the future of print news media in the age of digital everything. Will independent news outlets continue to thrive in the era of Facebook and Twitter? And will we still be able to luxuriate over the Sunday paper in years to come? Our guests, SF Chronicle Publisher Bill Nagel and Marin IJ Publisher Rob Devincenzi, will join us and provide their takes on where print news media are today and where they may be going.

This and all our virtual events are being brought to the community free of charge as part of our effort to continue our series of dialogues while in-person meetings cannot be held. We hope you’ll register to join us and will tune in on the 3rd at noon to hear this timely and important discussion.

Cost: Our webinars are free to all attendees, but if you would like to support our programs, please go to the Donate page to help defray our costs. Thank you.
