The Reynolds School Presents: New York Times Editor Dean Baquet

  • Nevada Museum of Art 160 West Liberty Street Reno, NV, 89501 United States (map)

Please join us for a special evening with one of America’s leading journalists. As executive editor, Dean Baquet holds the top position in The New York Times newsroom. This public forum will explore the state of the news media, coverage of the Trump administration, and how the Times is positioning itself during this period of unbridled social media, audience discontent and uncertain financial support.

Before being named executive editor, Baquet served in various editorial roles for the Times. He also was editor of the Los Angeles Times and, earlier in his career, was a reporter for The Times-Picayune in New Orleans and for the Chicago Tribune, where he was awarded a Pulitzer Prize leading a team of reporters who exposed corruption on the city council.

Dean Baquet’s visit is sponsored by the Reynolds School’s Paul A. Leonard Endowed Chair for Ethics and Writing in Journalism, and will be moderated by Professor Caesar Andrews, who holds the Leonard Chair.

You don't have to RSVP to attend.
