There’s been a lot of noise about media bias, especially over the past several years. Where once upon a time news was disseminated by a favorite and trusted radio, television, or newspaper outlet, today’s choices include a myriad of digital offerings from points of view both near and far abroad.
With no barrier to entry, the opportunity to have a voice and exert sway over masses of followers is unlimited. Along with multiple options, it’s also opened up a Pandora’s box of angles, some unvetted, unsourced, and untrue.
In a battle for ears and eyeballs, how does media, most especially “traditional media,” cut through the clutter and win back people’s trust? And as podcast listening continues to increase and attract major advertising dollars, how could its impact as a news source grow as well?
Juliet Huddy, co-host of WABC-AM in New York’s Curtis & Juliet radio program, sits down with Megyn Kelly, host of the podcast The Megyn Kelly Show and well-known journalist, attorney, and best-selling author, to discuss the future of media during an exclusive Forecast 2021 LIVE virtual presentation.
They’ll also discuss its role in the last election and how new media is reshaping the media landscape, including podcasting programs.
Kelly and Huddy will engage in their discussion from 2:05-2:45pm Eastern on December 9, the second of the two-day Forecast 2021 event.
It’s one conversation bound to make you think — about media, content control, and why that matters to you and your business — whether you own, manage, or invest in audio today.
Kelly was a journalist at Fox News from 2004 to 2017 and has moderated five presidential debates, including the first Republican primary debate in 2015. From 2017-2018, Kelly was a journalist with NBC News. Most recently, Kelly launched Devil May Care Media, an independent media venture that also produces her podcast, “The Megyn Kelly Show.”
