A conference organised by the Department of Journalism and Mass Communications in association with the British Journalism Review.

News media all over the world are failing as the traditional revenue from advertising bleeds to the web. Free news websites are discouraging the young from buying newspapers. So who will pay for what sort of journalism in the future?

Following last year’s hugely successful “Journalism in Crisis” the University of Westminster is holding a conference on the future funding of the news industry.

  • Prof. Robert Picard of “The Media Business”

Industry Panellists include

  • Richard Hooper – former dep. Chair OFCOM
  • Claire Enders – Enders Analysis
  • Roger Parry – former Chair Johnston Press
  • William Perrin – activist and blogger

Charles Wheeler Award and Memorial Lecture

The conference will conclude with the British Journalism Review annual presentation of the Charles Wheeler Award for Outstanding Contribution to Broadcast Journalism.

Followed by the Memorial Lecture, given by:

Boris Johnson
