#RealNews2017: Gathering, dispensing, and presenting news in today's social-mediated world

The challenge of gathering, dispensing and presenting news to the public in today’s social-mediated world will be featured at #RealNews2017, the 2017 Annual Industry/Student Communication Forum

The keynote address will be delivered by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who has been following American politics since the first Eisenhower campaign. Matthews began his career on television in 1994 as host of a two-hour nightly program on the NBC-owned America’s Talking network. Three years later, he launched “Hardball,” now on MSNBC, which was the title of his best-selling book on real-life politics published in 1988. He has been on the air every weekday night since.

In addition to Matthews, featured speakers and panelists are:

• Kevin Hall, Communications Director/Senior Policy Advisor, U.S. Sen. Mark Warner
• Pam Jenkins, President, Global Public Affairs, Weber Shandwick
• Jack Speer, Anchor, NPR News
• Anthony Shop, Chief Strategy Officer & Co-Founder, Social Driver
