New Yorker editor Nicholas Thompson will look at the future of journalism, and the impact mobile devices will have on investigative reporting and narrative journalism in his third and final public lecture as this year’s Nitze Fellow at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. It will start at 8 p.m. Monday, April 11, in Daugherty-Palmer Commons.
Before the New Yorker, Thompson worked for Wired magazine. He appears weekly on CNN International’s “World Business Today,” discussing the week in technology and has appeared on every major cable and broadcast news network. Thompson also is a panelist on CNNI’s “Connect the World” with Becky Anderson. He is a contributing editor for Bloomberg Television.
Each year, St. Mary’s invites an accomplished writer, journalist, or other professional figure to be the Nitze Senior Fellow. Last year’s Fellow was human rights activist John Prendergast who has led the fight against African genocide.
