Panel discussion (International Journalism Festival)

On 8 April I participated in a panel at the International Journalism Festival in Perugia, Italy, on behalf of De Correspondent. We talked about different funding models for high-quality journalism. From donations to micropayments, crowdfunding to billionaires, we explored what’s working for us. Fellow panelists were:

  • Joyce Barnathan, president of the International Centre for Journalists
  • Celeste LeCompte, director business development ProPublica
  • Maria Ramirez, co-founder El Español
  • Vivian Schiller, executive committee chair Vocativ and former CEO of NPR
