    “Digital First” is the latest buzzword in the news business. But what does it really mean for the future of news?

    Please join a nitty-gritty conversation with two executives who are building Digital First futures for their print companies: John Paton, CEO of Digital First Media (and CEO of Journal Register and MediaNews) and Justin Smith, president of Atlantic Media.

    Jeff Jarvis, director of the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, will question both men and lead a discussion with the audience drilling down to the specifics of how they are executing their strategies, covering content, revenue, costs, staffing, and the transition. Paton and Smith are the talk of the industry as they build bold new strategies for news and content.

    The program begins at 6 p.m. sharp on Tuesday, November 1st at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, 219 West 40th Street (between 7th and 8th Avenues), NYC. Plan to stick around for wine and more conversation following the event.

    RSVP for this event here.
