Minter Dialogue Episode #138Bertrand Pecquerie gen-global-editors-network

Bertrand Pecquerie

This interview is with Bertrand Pecquerie, CEO and founder of the Global Editors Network, a non-profit association that brings together editors-in-chief and senior news executives from all platforms (print, digital, mobile or broadcast) around the common goal of defining the future of journalism. In this discussion, we discuss how media companies are evolving, the use of big data and virtual reality in media and the viability of long form journalism.
