Food Media: Where Do We Go From Here?

The future of print journalism is an uncertain one. And as we navigate fickle advertising budgets, an increasing consumer interest in video and digital content, and a responsibility to engage in more meaningful conversations around political and social issues that impact those both in and out of the kitchen, we ask the question: what’s next for food media?

In partnership with Food Book Fair and Ace Hotel, we are joined by Juan Devis, Chief Creative Officer at KCETLink and Executive Producer of The Migrant Kitchen; Evan Kleiman, author, James Beard Award winner, and radio host of KCRW’s Good Food; and Claudia Wu, Co-founder and Creative Director of Cherry Bombe Magazine to discuss the new world of food media, from printed pages to audio and digital. Moderated by Life & Thyme’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Antonio Diaz.

Event is free to attend but seats are limited, so be sure to RSVP quickly!
