The McGraw Symposium: From Fake News to Virtual Reality - Journalism in the Age of Trump

Rarely has the news media faced such an array of challenges. Amidst allegations of “fake news” and media bias, attacks on the freedom of the press – and sometimes, on journalists themselves – have been a feature of the most acrimonious relationship between the media and the Administration in a generation. Meanwhile, the pace of digital change continues to intensify, as newsrooms double down on video and experiment with new tools such as bots and virtual reality. At the fourth annual McGraw Symposium, sponsored by the McGraw Center for Business Journalism at the CUNY J-School, top editors from Time Inc., the Associated Press and Vice News will discuss the state of the industry. We’ll talk about how they’re tackling these challenges, transforming their newsrooms, and perhaps most important – where they see opportunities ahead.

The McGraw Center was established in January 2014 at the CUNY J-School to enhance the quality and depth of business news coverage. Through the McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism, the Center provides experienced journalists with grants and editorial support to produce deeply-reported investigative and enterprise stories on important business and economic issues.

MSNBC's Ali Velshi Sits Down With Chobani CEO Hamdi Ulukaya

MSNBC anchor and correspondent Ali Velshi will interview Chobani CEO Hamdi Ulukaya during a session at SABEW’s annual fall conference at CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.

Ulukaya came to the U.S. from Turkey when he was 23 years old on a student visa. Today, he leads the best-selling yogurt brand in the nation and creates jobs worldwide for people including immigrants and refugees.

Ulukaya started Chobani in 2005 and built it into a nearly $1 billion business in just five years — during the nation’s worst economic crisis in decades. In 2011, Forbes dubbed him the “Steve Jobs of yogurt.”

Under Ulukaya’s leadership, Chobani has grown from five employees to over 3,000 globally. Amid the company’s rapid expansion, Ulukaya has maintained a cohesive, contagious culture in his booming empire.

Disrupting Digital Marketplaces: How IAC Has Changed the Game in Dating, Travel, Home Repairs and Publishing. A Conversation with IAC CEO Joey Levin.

You may be familiar with brands like Match.com, Tinder, Angie’s List and Vimeo, but you may not know much about their parent company, IAC. Founded in 1995 by Barry Diller as Interactive Corp., IAC is the home of some of the largest websites in the world and now holds more than 150 brands and products. Its forays into online dating through the Match Group of companies, travel through Expedia, and home repair through HomeAdvisor.com and now Angie’s List have fundamentally changed the matchmaking game between consumers and industries.

CEO Joey Levin has had a front row seat though the company’s growth, and has been in the driver’s seat since 2015. He sits down with CNBC’s Melissa Lee to talk about IAC’s strategy and where it sees future growth.

Repeal and Replace? Single-Payer? A Third Way? Finding the Way Forward in Health Care

Whether it's repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act or moving toward a single-payer system, health care as we know it seems to be on its last legs. How are hospitals coping with all this tumult? What are health insurers doing to keep themselves in business? How will all this affect consumers and the quality of their care? And, finally, what will our health-care industry — one-sixth of our economy — look like in five or 10 years?

Drew Armstrong, Bloomberg’s health and science team leader, will moderate an expert panel to give business journalists insights into this ever-shifting environment. The panelists will be Sara R. Collins, vice president of health-care coverage and access at The Commonwealth Fund; Arthur Gianelli, president of Mount Sinai St. Luke's; Tami Luhby, senior writer at CNN Money; and Richard Miller, executive vice president and chief business strategy officer at Northwell Health.

This session is sponsored by The Commonwealth Fund.

Trump Inc.: Covering the Trump Family Businesses

Media outlets have rushed to establish beats reporting on the business interests of the President and those close to him. Investigative reporters are now probing everything from his decades-old ties with Russian businessmen to recent goings on at Trump-branded properties in order to uncover the hidden details and possible conflicts in the businesses run by the President and his family.

The McGraw Center for Business Journalism will bring together several of the top reporters and editors on the beat to discuss what it took to produce their pieces. We’ll talk about how they developed their ideas and approached the reporting, what investigative techniques they’ve employed, and how they’ve broken through when the inevitable roadblocks arose. We’ll also talk about where the story goes from here and what areas deserve further investigation.
