In Orlando, Let Skip Pizzi and CBI be Your Guide to the Digital Media World

Digital Media Expert Skip Pizzi

What does the future hold for today’s graduates as broadcasting converts itself to a multiplatform content distribution system formerly known as radio and TV?  How is digital media transforming all businesses and career paths?  Is simply putting your programming on the web enough?  How should students, advisers, and professors adapt to this transformation?  Can traditional broadcasting stay relevant in a digital world?  At the CBI conference at the National College Media Convention, join Skip Pizzi, Director of Digital Strategies at the National Association of Broadcasters, who will discuss how this transition will ultimately mean more and better service for consumers, and greater opportunities for fun and fascinating careers in the broadcast industry and beyond.  Skip has a unique gift for making cutting-edge technology easy to understand and inspiring audiences to embrace the future.  Do not miss what promises to be one of the most talked-about sessions of the convention. 

Friday, 1:30 p.m. in the Fantail Room, 2nd floor of the Renaissance SeaWorld Hotel.
