Campbell Reid, Group Director - Editorial, News Limited

Event overview

The rise of social media, access to instant worldwide information via the internet and the ease with which people can set up their own blogs are just part of the evolving digital environment facing professional communicators today.

However, with the changing media landscape comes the question: "Are bloggers and alternative media outlets held to the same media regulation and ethics as established media companies?"

CEDA's Breakfast on the Run series is pleased to present Campbell Reid, Group Director - Editorial for News Corp Australia who will examine:

  • Adapting to a changing media production landscape;
  • The future of public and community media; and
  • Understanding consumers' changing media practices and preferences
