The Tower Forum is a private, non-profit, non-partisan business organization established in 1976.  The organization  consists of business executives from industries and professions in south Florida. The Tower Forum has become the “go-to” discussion venue in Broward, where these leaders identify critical issues facing our community, engage in public dialogue, and encourage positive change.

Our next breakfast is

Thurs., June 2, 2016

(to RSVP, please scroll down to the blue RSVP button)

What is the future of the newspaper industry? 

     The news industry has had a rough decade. Print readership is steadily declining, newspapers are closing, and journalists with decades of experience are being laid off.
      In response, major newspapers have made considerable changes. They’re attempting to combat diminishing reader interest by shortening stories, adding commentary, and most notably, using social media to their advantage.
      Is the golden age of Woodward and Bernstein, Edward R. Murrow, and Walter Cronkite long gone? Is the newspaper industry being hit by a cyclical trough and will recover, or has the new technology rendered newspapers obsolete in their traditional format?
     Participate with veteran players of  major newspapers in South Florida, as they examine this critical topic. 

Miami Herald editor Mindy Marques.
