Featured Session: The Future of News is NOW

Mar 11, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

As consumers of news have been changing their viewing habits in transformative ways, join two leaders of NBCUniversal News Group – NBC News President Noah Oppenheim and MSNBC President Rashida Jones – for a discussion on how they’re steering the nation’s most-watched news organization through this historic period. They will be joined by TODAY All Day’s Al Roker, NBC News NOW anchor Hallie Jackson, and Peacock’s The Choice from MSNBC host Symone Sanders to talk about how the News Group’s three distinct streaming networks have found early success connecting with viewers in the rapidly growing digital space, while continuing to provide compelling content for traditional television services.
