Today's media is more diverse than ever. New technologies introduced in the last twenty years have dramatically altered the way we interact with media. The ongoing global pandemic has accelerated trends that were already in place before the turn of the decade. To make sense of these changes and predict some future trends, we turn to a panel of veteran media members.
Join the Publicity Club of Chicago on Wednesday, February 2 at 12:00 PM for Media Trends in 2022. This webinar will feature Axios' Monica Eng, Politico's Shia Kapos, and Chicago Public Square's Charlie Meyerson.
