During the past decade, with advances in digital technologies and rapid increase in the penetration of the internet, media has undergone a dramatic change in the manner in which news is gathered, disseminated and interpreted. There is an emphasis on speed, a premium on immediacy and virtually instant interpretation such as through Twitter. Traditional media, both print and electronic, are struggling to stay relevant and are themselves, adapting to and adopting the new technologies to create web-based news portals, mixing text and images to survive in this new environment, which is still in the throes of rapid change. The panel on “Unpacking Media – Digital & Traditional” will seek to explore and understand these changes and look to what the future may hold. We have outstanding journalists who have lived through this transition and those who have achieved success in the new media. They will share their rich and varied experiences with us.
