“Great devices help. Fantastic wireless connections help. Superb desktop navigation systems help. But... they are merely technological means to an end — and the end is, and always has been, storytelling."
So says Mark Lukasiewicz, the vice president of NBC News Specials and Digital Media. One of a number of Canadians who've established successful journalism careers in the United States, Mark has seen TV news ride a few tech storm waves, from the rise and fall of the dot.com era to today's radically redefined multi-channel universe. Yet while the mediums may change, he says, there will always be a demand for quality journalism.
The Canadian Journalism Foundation welcomes Mark Lukasiewicz to Toronto. He is introduced by Executive Director of Documentary Programming for CBC Television, Mark Starowicz.
