Alan Rusbridger, Editor-in-chief of the British daily ‘The Guardian’, will give a presentation at the Press Club, Mumbai, on The Future of Journalism in a Digital Age, on March 19 at 5.15pm.


The presentation will cover a wide gamut of issues from the changes wrought by technology to concerns about regulation and ethical standards in journalism.


It will be followed by a Q & A session. Seating will be on a first-come-first-served basis, and reporters and local editors may cover the event.


Mr Rusbridger, known for his fierce independence and his liberal views, has been the editor of The Guardian since 1995, having joined it as a reporter in 1979. He recently wrote the book ‘Play It Again’ about how he took a year off from news to rediscover himself as a pianist.


The Guardian, known until 1959 as The Manchester Guardian (founded in 1821), has grown from a 19th-century local paper to a national paper with a wide web presence. It has a certified average daily circulation of over 200,000. The paper currently identifies with social liberalism.
