Explore the chequered past and fraught future of local radical journalism in this loose and lively session celebrating (to the day!) the 80th anniversary of the founding of Victoria University of Wellington’s student newspaper, Salient. Writers & Readers manager Mark Cubey talks to a range of fellow Salient alumni, including counsellor Bill Logan, publisher Roger Steele, RNZ journalist Sarah Robson, Spinoff editor Toby Manhire, cartoonists Toby Morris and Tim Bollinger, data journalist Keith Ng, investigative journalist Matt Nippert, JustSpeak director Tania Sawicki Mead and current Salient editor Louise Lin in a fast-moving and fun-focused discussion about what’s changed for media, what’s stayed the same and what happens next when reporting real news.
