Event Details

It’s an exciting time in the landscape of San Francisco journalism as we see tectonic changes take place before our eyes. There have recently been some enticing examples of citizen-funded journalism, including quality investigative reports on the over-budget Bay Bridge project and the proposed development of Treasure Island. This evening we bring some key players in public-interest reporting to The Booksmith to discuss the emerging models which will compete and compliment the incumbents bringing us Bay Area news.

  • Lisa Frazier is the President and CEO of The Bay Citizen.
  • Michael Stoll is the Executive Director of SF Public Press.
  • Lydia Chavez is the Managing Editor of Mission Local.
  • Christin Evans, co-owner of the Booksmith and a self-proclaimed news junkie, will moderate this panel. She has dabbled in citizen reporting through her contributions to the Huffington Post and will ask the tough questions about what we can expect from local journalism in the years ahead.

We’ll discuss the sustainability of their models, what career opportunities they are providing for aspiring and seasoned journalists, and the ways in which they are distributing their content through new media and traditional print.
