It is no secret that American media is in turmoil, with many longstanding fixtures in print journalism either folding or forced to layoff staff. Each week, we’ve had a different media insider will offer their perspective on what media will look like in 5, 10, or 15 years–and what will become of investigative journalism. The series includes commentary from John Nichols, Dan Rather, Jane Mayer, Victor Navasky, Ana Marie Cox, David Schimke and Nick Penniman.

“You’re going to have to know how to do everything,” says student journalist Sahara White at The Nation and Campus Progress’s Annual Student Journalism Conference, which students attended through the efforts of Campus Progress. Audio, video, photos, blogs–all will be part of the future of the media. But journalism programs haven’t yet adapted their programs, students say. “What the mainstream is will change,” says Easter Wood.
