A panel discussion about keeping the news financially afloat
There's no question that it's tough out there for media organizations today. From venture-capital catastrophes to mercurial philanthropists to pivots to video, it's a uniquely rocky moment for outlets to find their financial footing.
Kickstarter Journalism and Block Club Chicago present a conversation about making the money work in the media, from tried-and-true tactics like memberships and paywalls to off-the-wall ideas like free circulation and Chance the Snapper t-shirts.
Stephanie Lulay, Managing Editor, Block Club Chicago
Tracy Baim, Publisher, The Chicago Reader
Jon Greenberg, Lead Columnist, The Athletic
Soni Sinha, Development Director, Free Spirit Media
Moderated by Oriana Leckert, Senior Journalism Outreach Lead, Kickstarter
Doors at 6pm; discussion at 7pm.
The panel is free and open to all, and there will be light refreshments.
