Session: US-Media: Tales from the Battlefield.

Mark Glaser and the American Media Landscape.

The North-American media landscape is in upheaval. While many old media giants are ailing, citizens, journalists, academics and entrepreneurs are testing new media platforms, new business models and new forms of journalism. Marc Glaser has been reporting on the tectonic shift within the North American and European media industry since 2001 and is currently the executive editor of PBS Media Shift. Wolfgang Blau, chief editor of ZEIT ONLINE and Marc Koch, chief-editor of Deutsche Welle, will speak with Marc Glaser about his observations of an industry in creative disruption.
