Executives chosen among Electronic Media’s “12 to Watch” for 2001 (EM, Jan. 22) will discuss the future of media Feb. 23 at an International Radio and Television Society Newsmaker Luncheon at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York.
The event will begin with an 11:45 a.m. reception followed by a 12:30 p.m. luncheon-discussion featuring media chieftains Bob Cook of Twentieth Television, Pat Mitchell of PBS, Steve Mosko of Columbia TriStar Television Distribution, Laureen Ong of the National Geographic Channel and Jeff Smulyan of Emmis Communications. Electronic Media Editor Chuck Ross will lead the panel, which will focus on such issues as media concentration, content, profit models and technology.
Tickets are available by calling Marilyn Ellis at 212-867-6650, Ext. 306.
“These executives represent one of the most powerful and diverse panels we’ve had at a Newsmaker Luncheon,” said IRTS Foundation President Joyce Tudryn. “We are looking forward to a lively and thoughtful discussion.”
Past “12 to Watch” recipients and 75 university communications professors from across the country are expected to join several hundred media executives at the event.
