Katie Couric's contributions to American journalism, and her continued innovation in the digital space, are difficult to overstate. She's held a leading role at nearly every major US television network, served as inaugural global anchor for Yahoo! News and now runs her own media company, Katie Couric Media, creating a newsletter, the "Next Question with Katie Couric" podcast and several streaming video series. She'll bring these collective accomplishments to bear in a fireside chat with co-founder and CEO of The 19th*, Emily Ramshaw. They will discuss issues central to The 19th's coverage – politics, gender and policy – at a time when it's never been more urgent.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsroom leaders refining their coverage of the final few weeks of the US presidential election – and all of the associated context that comes with it this year
  • Those interested in career tips from two amazing women leaders in journalism (so, everyone!)
