- Gabe Bullard, director of news and editorial strategy at WFPL-FM
- Barry Fulmer, vice president and director of news at WDRB-TV

Panelists will discuss how Louisville’s newspapers and broadcasters will remain competitive in a transforming news industry and what local strategies have been implemented to keep consumers engaged, advertisers satisfied and owners profitable.
Bellarmine's School of Communication is sponsoring the forum, which is free and open to the public. Dr. Lara Needham, the school's dean, will moderate the panel and invite questions from the audience.
“This event promises to be an engaging learning opportunity for Bellarmine students, members of the local community, and industry insiders. I look forward to hearing these media leaders describe their unique vision for the digital evolution of news in Louisville,” said Needham.
The School of Communication is the hub of student media at Bellarmine University, offering several undergraduate areas of study, along with a master's degree in communication. Undergraduates can earn degrees with a focus on advertising and public relations, graphic and digital design, journalism and new media writing, social media marketing, television and radio production, or sports broadcasting.
