On the heels of the election of a new board and an energizing national conference, AWC Seattle is ready to engage members and appeal to newcomers with a powerful presentation about the ever-changing local news landscape.

The plight of bricks-and-mortar newsrooms that were once the foundation of an informed American society has reached a perilous state of play. From 2008 to 2018, newspapers across the US lost nearly half of their workforce, and newspaper circulation has hit historic lows as more people consume news online.

The loss of people and publications hit some print news sections particularly hard -- local news and investigative news, two sections with generally lower ad revenue, have had to scramble to survive and continue to provide news essential for a thriving democracy.

Passionate and committed journalists had to break new ground, find new audiences, embrace new business models and adapt to new distribution archetypes to be sustainable and remain credible.

Against all odds, three local journalists launched three very different digital newsrooms that have staked a claim in the Puget Sound news scene.

Join us for this lunch program as we find out what inspired them to create their online news platforms, what challenges they face, what they see for the future of journalism, and how they work with communications professionals.
