Lots to talk about on ‘Reliable Sources’ this Sunday with our guest host, Brian Stelter of the New York Times.
This week, the Washington Post’s historic decision to sell the paper to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos had journalists and those in the media world pondering the future of the paper and the larger implications across the print journalism industry. We’ll get reaction from American University’s Jane Hall, Paul Farhi of The Washington Post & Jenna Wortham of The New York Times.
We’ll also sit down with Business Insider CEO Henry Blodget to ask him what he thinks about Bezos’ recent purchase and what it could mean for The Washington Post’s future in a competitive digital news environment.
Also on the show, we’ll invite panelists Paul Farhi & Jane Hall back to weigh in on the ratings challenges facing new NBC News president Deborah Turness, the first female to hold the top spot at a network news operation.
Amid news of renewed terror threats from al Qaeda, we’ll ask Jeb Boone, former editor of the Yemen Times, and freelance reporters Adam Baron and Iona Craig about what it’s like to report on the ground from Yemen.
And as “Fox Sports 1” prepares to taken on ESPN, we’ll discuss the rise in popularity of sports programming with ESPN President John Skipper.
Finally, as John Oliver nears the end of his ‘The Daily Show’ summer guest hosting stint, we’ll get perspective on Oliver’s performance so far and reaction from fans on which Jon (or John) they prefer to see in the host’s chair.
Tune in Sunday morning at 11am ET.
