New News: How to Adapt and Adopt: The Challenge of News Media in a Citizen Empowered Age

In his keynote speech for the New News conference, Kim Williams talks about the future of journalism in the digital age, as the great information technologies of telecommunications, computing, publishing and broadcasting converge. And he offers his thoughts on how media organisations might make money in the future, and how journalism might be paid for.


Kim Williams has been a senior media executive for over 30 years, working in television management, film and television production, public policy in government and most recently as CEO of News Corp Australia.

This is a great opportunity to hear someone who has been at the helm of some of Australia’s leading media organisations, from News Corp and Foxtel to the Australian Film Commission and Fox Studios, survey our rapidly changing landscape – and make predictions for what the future will bring.

New News was presented in partnership with the Wheeler Centre and the Centre for Advancing Journalism at the University of Melbourne.
