Keynote: Can You Tell Me How To Get To … Our Next News Audience?

  • Saturday - 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Chicago Ballrooms
  • #ona14sesame

Our Saturday lunch keynote is a very special one. The folks from Sesame Workshop will talk about what it takes to continually innovate for more than four decades, as well as how to reach our tiniest digital natives -- and future news audience -- who are interacting with emerging tools as early as five years of age. Expect insightful discussions, fun, and yes ... Muppets. A note for parents: children are welcome to attend, but please be aware the performers won't be hidden by a screen! If this might upset your child, please use your judgment on whether or not they should attend this session.
