The national media landscape has changed dramatically, and that means NABJ has to be fully committed to transitioning to an organization that is focused on digital media. No longer can we operate in the traditional silos of print and broadcast. My goal is to see us to fully prepare the next generation for a digital world, and to also position our veteran members to excel in this same space. That means having national, regional and local programming that serves our members in this space to allow them to be able to compete for entry level, mid and executive positions.
