Where Does The Power Lie in The Media?

This event explores where the power currently lies in the media we consume, particularly in the North of England. Northern Correspondent editor Ian Wylie presents a newly commissioned essay and will be joined by a panel of journalists to discuss who speaks out for the North of England in traditional and new media, as well as looking at the changing face of journalism in the 21st century.

Helen Pidd is North of England editor for The Guardian and is based in Manchester; Peter Barron was editor of The Northern Echo for 17 years; and Rachel Hamada is journalist-director for The Ferret, an in-depth investigative journalism platform for Scotland and beyond.

This is a Durham Book Festival commission
