SABEW2019 has ended
Journalism in a Time of Disruption 
SABEW’s 56th annual Spring conference will explore the many challenges – and opportunities – our industry faces today. Through skills session, keynotes and networking, we’ll help reporters and news managers do their jobs better and make sense of what’s happening in our industry. We look forward to seeing you at ASU’s casual campus setting in sunny Phoenix where you’ll get a chance to connect with colleagues old and new and ensure that business journalism continues to thrive.

How Voice Search and the Internet of Things are Changing Journalism

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Perhaps half of all internet searches will be spoken out loud within the next few years, making voice a critical gateway to media going forward. A third of searches won't even involve a screen. How might that change the way people consume news? We explore how newsroom strategies are shifting under the expectation that half of US households could soon own a smart speaker.

Room 256 - The azcentral.com classroom, located on the 2nd Floor of ASU’s Cronkite School, 555 North Central Ave., Phoenix.
