Marvin Kalb on The Kalb Report at the National Press Club. United States, 2013.

For the Monday, March 23, edition of The Kalb Report, Pulitzer Center senior adviser Marvin Kalb leads a panel of leaders in news innovation: Pulitzer Center Executive Director Jon Sawyer, CNN Senior Vice President and Washington Bureau Chief Sam Feist, BuzzFeed White House Reporter Evan McMorris-Santoro, and Wall Street Journal Deputy Managing Editor Gabriella Stern.

"We live in an age when people 'read CNN' and 'watch The New York Times.' As venerable news organizations transform themselves to survive and thrive in a digital world, new competitors are attracting huge audiences, unencumbered by old infrastructures and empowered by technology," Kalb writes in an invitation for the event.

In the televised discussion, filmed at the National Press Club, Kalb examines how "this dynamic is driving innovation in the way news is gathered, sorted, reported and consumed."

"Not since Edward R. Murrow invented broadcast news during World War II has the world seen such a dramatic change in journalism. Just as important, Murrow established a standard of quality that has withstood the test of time," Kalb writes.

The Kalb Report series is produced jointly by the National Press Club Journalism Institute, the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs, Harvard University's Shorenstein Center, University of Maryland University College and the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland.
