NEW YORK--()--On the eve of the presidential election, Glenn Hubbard, who heads the Columbia Graduate School of Business, will be featured at SABEW’s fall conference Friday, Sept. 28, here in New York.
Hubbard, an economic adviser to GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, will be interviewed by Floyd Norris, a reporter and columnist for The New York Times, at 10 a.m. at SABEW’s annual fall conference at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism.
Their discussion about the economy will punctuate an already-strong program of speakers during the two day event on Sept. 27 -28. The program includes Dow Jones CEO Lex Fenwick, authors Diana Henriques and Bethany McLean, and New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson.
Thursday evening will feature an opening reception, highlighted by a special presentation of SABEW’s Distinguished Achievement Award to Henriques, author of the best-seller “The Wizard of Lies.” Also an investigative reporter at The New York Times, she will be joined in conversation by Times editor Jill Abramson.
The conversation is expected to focus on the importance of accountability journalism and investigative reporting as Henriques receives SABEW’s highest honor, symbolic of a lifetime of quality journalism.
It will be part of an opening-night doubleheader as SABEW convenes a fall meeting at CUNY for the third straight year. The event, following a 6 p.m. reception, will start with a discussion with leading website editors on how social media drives the business news cycle today. That will be immediately followed by the Henriques-Abramson program.
A full day of keynote discussions and panels and skills sessions will follow on Sept. 28.
Others featured on the second day include: Lex Fenwick, Dow Jones CEO; Lewis D’Vorkin, chief product officer, Forbes Media; Andrew Ross Sorkin, editor of the Dealbook section of The New York Times; Sree Sreenivasan, chief digital officer at Columbia University and social media expert; and McLean.
CNBC editor Nik Deogun will be joined by Financial Times U.S. managing editor Gillian Tett, and Bloomberg BusinessWeek editor Josh Tyrangiel in a discussion about attracting and maintaining an audience in business news.
Registration is available for $179 for SABEW members and $229 for non-members.
A special Thursday-evening rate has been set for $50 for an opening reception and the evening discussions.
