@BBC #FakeNews Alert | Big Talk March 2017 – BBC World, Channel 4, Al Jazeera, Associated Press

For our first ‘Big Talk’ of 2017, Shout! Communications hosted four fantastic speakers from across the broadcast spectrum. Held at the main offices of the CIPR, we had a full house for a morning of fantastic insight into the changing landscape of media.

Our fantastic speakers were:

– Richard Martin, Executive Producer at Al Jazeera
– Mary Hockaday, Controller, BBC World Service (12:46)
– Jon Laurence, Digital and Online Editor, Channel 4 News (28:15)
– Sandy MacIntyre, Vice-President Global Video News, Associated Press (41:32)

They discussed a range of issues facing broadcasters such as ‘fake news’, the digital age, and how the fundamentals of journalism are more important than ever.

Thanks to our hosts CIPR and our sponsors Business Wire for their support. Stay tuned for the next Big Talk in June 2017!
