WASHINGTON - Rupert Murdoch, Chairman and CEO of News Corporation, joins legendary journalist Marvin Kalb to share his unique perspectives on the future of journalism and the media in the next edition of The Kalb Report, Tuesday, April 6, 2010, at 8 p.m. in the main ballroom of the National Press Club (529 14th St., NW, Washington, D.C., 20045).
“There are few people in America who exercise so powerful an influence over what we see, what we hear, what we know about our world as Rupert Murdoch,” said Mr. Kalb. “I cannot wait to sit down and talk to this media mogul about the crisis in contemporary journalism and to hear his views about what can be done to fix it. What a wonderful opportunity!”
From print to television to the silver screen, Rupert Murdoch’s ever-growing media empire seemingly knows no bounds. As the founder, chairman, and chief executive of News Corporation, Mr. Murdoch’s reign began with the acquisition of local newspapers in his native Australia. Utilizing the tabloid technique that he later made the signature style of “The New York Post,” these newspapers thrived under the leadership of Mr. Murdoch and quickly established him as one of the most powerful businessmen in Australia. He then expanded beyond Australia, adding the U.S., UK and Asia to his media portfolio. Starting with his first American acquisition in 1973, the “San Antonio Express-News,” Mr. Murdoch swiftly duplicated and exceeded his Australian success in the United States. Noteworthy acquisitions and launches included “The New York Post,” 20th Century Fox Film Corporation, the Fox Broadcasting Company, the Fox News Channel, Dow Jones & Company and the popular social networking site, MySpace.
“In this age of global communication, Rupert Murdoch transcends all generational and geographic boundaries,” said Michael Freedman, executive producer of “The Kalb Report.” “As we prepare our students for leadership roles in journalism and media, this forum offers an exceptional opportunity for them to hear from the industry’s biggest stakeholder up close and personal.”
“The Kalb Report” is produced by The George Washington University’s Global Media Institute, Harvard’s Joan Shorenstein Center and the National Press Club. For the seventh consecutive season, the series is underwritten by a grant from Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation. Since its debut in 1994, the partnership has produced 67 “Kalb Report” forums on issues at the intersection of press, politics and public policy. Guests have included Walter Cronkite, Christiane Amanpour, Roger Ailes, Ken Burns, Thomas Friedman, Bill O’Reilly, Hillary Clinton, Katie Couric and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel. The series is distributed by Oklahoma Educational Television Authority and American Public Television, and has been seen on more than 200 local public television stations across the country with additional airings on New England Cable News. The series also airs nationally on Sirius-XM Satellite Radio and locally in Washington, D.C., on Federal News Radio (1500-AM). All forums offer open media coverage.

I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
