On October 3, five national journalists will be on campus to discuss their work in covering economic and business news. Their visit will include a public panel discussion titled "Beyond the Headlines" at 4:30 p.m. in Filene Auditorium in Moore Hall. The panel will feature Greg Ip from The Wall Street Journal, CNBC's Senior Economics Reporter Steve Liesman, Eduardo Porter from The New York Times, Peter Coy from Business Week, and Andrew Serwer from Fortune and CNN.

The discussion will be moderated by Andrew Samwick, director of Dartmouth's Rockefeller Center, and it is free and open to the public.

The panel will discuss how economic and public policy issues are covered by the media, the public's understanding of these issues, and how these issues are likely to influence elections in the coming years. Panelists will also describe factors that impact the media's role in reporting these issues. Finally, in our rapidly changing environment influenced by technology, journalists will discuss new methods of communication and their impact on the future of traditional media.

"The news media play an essential role in shaping the discussion of public policy issues through investigative reporting, analysis, and commentary," says Samwick. "Our panel is made up of distinguished journalists from both print and television outlets that have insights on how the media are evolving in the Information Age. Each of them has a unique vantage point on the economic and policy challenges facing the country and the way those challenges will be portrayed in the media."

This program is co-sponsored by the Rockefeller Center and Dartmouth's Office of Public Affairs.

Dartmouth has television (satellite uplink) and radio (ISDN) studios available for domestic and international live and taped interviews. For more information, call 603-646-3661 or see our Radio, Television capability webpage.
