Public service media promise to play a special role in society and, at their best, remain some of the most widely used and highly and broadly trusted sources of news. But public service media also face old and new perils – frequent political attacks, competitive pressures from both private sector news media and from platform companies, the risk of losing touch especially with younger and hard-to-reach audiences, and the challenge of how to serve everybody in irreducibly diverse, deeply unequal, and often disputatious societies. In this panel discussion, three public service news leaders offer their thoughts on how the institution needs to evolve to deliver on its promise.

Moderated by Rasmus Nielsen.
