This morning, I joined a group of esteemed journalists on a panel as part of Leadership Boise's Media Day. It was an interesting mix: My fellow panelists are longtime members of the Fourth Estate whereas my own tenure is pretty short.
My fellow panelists were CBS 2 Eyewitness News co-anchor Mike Murad, KBOI news/talk 670 sports director and morning show co-host Paul J. Schneider and Idaho Statesman reporter/columnist Dan Popkey. City of Boise Public Works Department community relations supervisor Vince Trimboli moderated. We sat before a group of Leadership Boise students—all adults—and fielded questions about media convergence, changes in our respective industries, accountability and good storytelling vs. quick storytelling.
I can't speak for my fellow panelists, but after the hour or so that we answered excellent questions from both the moderator and the Leadership Boise audience, I felt that I took as much away from the experience as any of them may have.
I hope to see more discussions like this about the future of media and I hope to be a part of them (regardless of which side of the table I'm on).
