Being on top of news trends is vital for PR professionals. During the Meet the Media forum, a New York Times editor explained her thoughts on growing content areas at the paper, and what types of stories have increasing opportunities to be shared. She honed in on constantly developing topics, such as privacy issues, and how readers should expect more and more stories in this area over the next few years.
Rebecca Blumenstein is Deputy Managing Editor of the New York Times, a post she assumed in 2019. Prior to that she was Deputy Editor in Chief of The Wall Street Journal, the highest-ranking woman to lead the paper’s news organization to date. She’s received numerous awards including overseeing the China team for the Wall Street Journal that won a Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting in 2007.
PRSA-NY hosted the event featuring Rebecca and moderated by Doug Simon, CEO of D S Simon Media.
