A group of local media business specialists will explore “The future of local journalism” in a panel discussion at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden, downtown Brattleboro, on Thursday, Sept. 24 at noon.
The event is part of the daily Brown Bag Lunch events presented by Strolling of the Heifers, and is the second annual panel discussion on local journalism in the series.
Participants include Ed Woods, CEO of New England Newspapers, Inc. and publisher of the Reformer, Randy Holhut, deputy editor of The Commons, Kevin Moran, group editor for New England Newspapers, Roland Boyden, production manager of Brattleboro Community Television, and Martin Langeveld, retired newspaper executive and media blogger.
