The evolution of news media will be the topic of the next Paul and Louise Miller Lecture at Rochester Institute of Technology. The panel discussion will be from 10 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 21, in Webb Auditorium in the James E. Booth Building. The presentation is free and open to the public.

Twyla Cummings, Paul and Louise Miller Distinguished Professor in RIT’s School of Print Media, will serve as moderator.

The panel will debate issues such as who is the current news audience, how people will get their news in the future, and increasing readership/viewership utilizing various multimedia platforms.
