The challenges faced by local journalism are often overshadowed by concerns about the state of national news media. Increasingly, however, policy makers, citizens and others are joining journalists in sounding the alarm about local newsroom cutbacks and closures.
Is no local news bad news? Local journalism and its future will take place June 3-4, 2017 on the campus of Ryerson University in Toronto, Ont., Canada.
The conference, convened by the Ryerson Journalism Research Centre, will bring together journalists, citizens, policy makers, journalism educators and Canadian and international scholars.
The deadline for panel proposals and/or abstracts for the conference is fast approaching. Be sure to get your preliminary materials submitted by January 5, 2017.
