Time, Newsweek editors discuss future of print, Nov. 28
Posted November 26, 2007; 04:59 p.m.
Jim Kelly, managing editor of Time Inc., and Evan Thomas, Newsweek editor-at-large, will discuss the future of print journalism in an event titled "How Dead Is Print?" at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, in 101 McCormick Hall.
Kelly and Thomas will speak on how the print media are adapting to changes in an increasingly digital world in which more people are getting their news from blogs and other online sources, and advertising and circulation revenues have decreased.
Kelly is a 1976 Princeton graduate. Before assuming his post as managing editor of Time Inc. in 2006, Kelly served as managing editor of the company's flagship magazine, Time. During his tenure, Time won four National Magazine Awards, including the award for general excellence.
Thomas was named editor-at-large of Newsweek in September 2006 and is the magazine's lead writer on major news stories. He has twice served as a visiting professor of journalism at Princeton and this fall began a five-year term as the Ferris Professor in Residence.
The discussion is sponsored by the University Press Club as part of its Louis R. Rukeyser '54 Memorial Lecture Series.
