Journalism Speakers

The truth is out there. And the role of the modern journalist is to find it.

Journalism and mass media have undergone profound changes with the advent of digital technology and the 24 hour, instantaneous news cycle on the Internet, as people increasingly consume news through e-readers, smartphones, and other electronic devices. Today, news organizations are constantly challenged to get accurate information to the masses quickly and efficiently.

The Journalism Speakers and media experts at our speakers bureau include distinguished veterans and iconic figures from print, broadcast and electronic media outlets: major network anchors, award-winning newspaper and magazine columnists, commentators, and reporters who deliver insight and perspective on current events and topical issues.

Celebrities in their own right, our Journalism Speakers are guaranteed to lend gravitas to a panel, cachet to a conference keynote and excitement to a university lecture.
