The Players’ Tribune is one of the more prominent examples of media startups disrupting both the traditional media business model and the notion of professional journalism itself. This panel discussion will focus on the process of bringing The Players’ Tribune from idea, to pitch, to reality. Panelists are Dan Treadway, deputy editor, The Players’ Tribune, and Anne Hoag, associate professor of communications and director of the minor in entrepreneurship and innovation. Moderator: John Affleck, the Knight Chair in Sports Journalism and Society and director of the John Curley Center for Sports Journalism.
