On Tuesday we celebrated 10 years of TVNewser at the TVNewser Show and Job Fair. More than 900 job seekers and seminar participants packed the New Yorker Hotel for a day of hot TV news topics: there were drones and there was cake. We talked about the future of Aereo, the state of local media, and diversity in the newsroom — and on the air. The day kicked off with a keynote from “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier, followed by a Q and A with the Fox News anchor. We’ll be writing up that conversation in the coming days, as well as posting several video interviews with, among others, NBC’s Tamron Hall, Fusion’s Alicia Menendez and Tribune Media president Larry Wert. In the meantime, here’s a slideshow of some of the highlights.

The TVNewser Show is coming together. As part of the lineup we’ve got Fox News anchor Bret Baier, Fusion anchor Alicia Menendez, Tribune Broadcasting president Larry Wert, NBC SVP Julian March, CNN VP Geraldine Moriba and many more joining us on April 29. And we’d love for you to join us as well.
We’ll be talking about Aereo, a service that broadcasters want to see shut down and the Supreme Court will be taking up just a week before the TVNewser Show. Also, the use of drones in newsgathering: revolutionary but controversial. The growth of Social TV, which is changing the way shows are produced and watched. Plus, we’ll introduce you to new Web TV experiences and we’ll get to the bottom of why Millennials are the hot new audience.
Fox News “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier will be the morning keynote speaker for the TVNewser Show, April 29 in New York City. This being an election year, we’ll talk with Baier about what’s ahead for Washington, and about media coverage of policy, politics and politicians.
Baier will join decision makers and thought leaders from NBC News, ABC News, and CNN for the day-long conference. You may have seen the ads running on TVNewser and our other sites which explain the agenda, but what we’re trying to do with the show is bring the leading minds in the business in one room on one day to discuss where the business is going.
Just a week before the conference the Supreme Court will take up the case of Aereo. So we’ll talk about that. We’ll also talk about media consolidation, the second screen, newsroom diversity, how broadcasters are adapting to the growth of TV everywhere, and more. Other speakers include Tribune broadcasting president Larry Wert, Fusion anchor Alicia Menendez, CNN executive Geraldine Moriba and NBC News executive Julian March.
We’re also pleased to present the TVNewser Job Fair which will tap the resources of Mediabistro’s leading job service, bringing together the nation’s top media companies in one place, allowing attendees to meet one-on-one with hiring managers.
We’ll bring you updates about speakers and attendees in the coming weeks. We hope you’ll join us on April 29.
