Aegis Media, with BizCommunity, are hosting the fourth Thought Leadership Digibate that will discuss and debate the current state and future of print media in South Africa.
What has caused the demise of print and where have the readers gone? How will the print media industry be financially sustained? Is the Internet supporting or replacing print media? These are all topics of conversation that will be tackled by a host of panelists including:
- Vanessa Raphaely, editorial director, Associated Magazines
- Danette Breitenbach, editor, Advantage Magazine
- Karen Phelan, managing director, Full Circle Media
- Nic van den Bergh, SSA trading director, Aegis Media
- Brendon Cooper, publisher, Media 24
“Magazine sales are dropping and publishing houses need to understand why and come up with alternative solutions to maintain a healthy revenue stream,” says Dawn Rowlands, CEO Sub Saharan Africa, Aegis Media, who will moderate the session,
“I am certain that sharing insights from all angles will be encouraging in so far as the possible outtakes that will be gleaned by people in the print media industry.”
Podcasts will be made available for download following the debate on http://www.bizcommunity.com/AegisThoughtLeadership and www.bizradio.co.za.
The Digibate will be audio streamed live on www.bizradio.co.za on March 16, 2012 between 09h15 and 11h00.
