Final reminder about tomorrow’s PFF event on “Can Government Help Save the Press?” Again, the event will take place from 9 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. in the International Gateway Room, Mezzanine Level of the Ronald Reagan Building on 1300 Pennsylvania Ave, N.W. here in DC. This event will examine the FCC’s “Future of Media” proceeding and debate what role the government should play (if any) in sustaining struggling media enterprises, “saving journalism,” or promoting more “public media” or “public interest” content. The event includes a keynote address by Ellen P. Goodman, who is a Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the FCC and is assisting the FCC’s Future of Media team. After Ellen Goodman brings us up to speed with where the FCC’s Future of Media process stands, we’ll hear from a diverse panel of experts that includes:
- Charlie Firestone – Executive Director, Aspen Institute Communications and Society Program
- Kurt Wimmer – Partner, Covington & Burling (who represents broadcasters among others)
- Andrew Jay Schwartzman – Senior Vice President and Policy Director, Media Access Project
- Craig L. Parshall – Senior Vice President and General Counsel, National Religious Broadcasters
- Robert Corn-Revere – Partner, Davis Wright Tremaine
Hope to see some of you tomorrow morning at 9:00!
