What: AWRT-NYC presents a lunchtime panel discussion, “Women Inside the Campaign Trail: A Post-Election Conversation”
This year’s Presidential campaign has seen more women in high-profile media positions””from executive management to studio anchoring to on-the-road reporting–than ever before. In newsrooms and studios, on websites, podcasts and blogs, women were on-the-scene and in control of the media’s coverage of Campaign ’08.
Join AWRT-NYC and our panel of three special guests for a cand id conversation about life behind-the-scenes of an historic election in a brave, new world of seemingly limitless media distribution. This event will be moderated by Betsy Morgan, CEO of The Huffington Post. We’ll explore the realities of news reporting, share stories from the road and debate the criticisms between the media, the campaigns and the American public.
