How's the Monitor doing? Here's where to hear an update

(Read article summary)

We're 101-years into our mission and nine months into our new way of doing things at the Monitor, our shift from daily print to Web-first journalism. So how's it going? Glad you asked.

On Friday evening, a group of Monitor correspondents and I will give you update on, the Monitor weekly, the Daily News Briefing, and other elements of the Monitor's groundbreaking publishing strategy. I'll be anchoring the event from Principia College and it will air live on Principia Internet Radio (PIR) beginning at 8 p.m. (CST).

Joining me in the serene little college town of Elsah, Ill., for the live event will be Monitor White House correspondent Linda Feldmann. We'll link in Monitor correspondents Peter Ford (Beijing), Carol Huang (Asia editor), and Gloria Goodale (US West Coast). You can expect the dialogue to be lively and thought-provoking, addressing these topics and more:

  • US policy regarding global hotspots
  • domestic affairs ranging from healthcare to economics and education to immigration
  • the status of media in today’s technologically advanced world
  • globalization of commerce, religion, transportation, and communication
  • politics and government
  • the status of The Christian Science Monitor (in print and online)
  • and, of course, our unique mission: "to injure no man, but to bless all mankind."

We'll take questions from the audience.

If you’re in the St. Louis and/or Elsah area, come by Cox Auditorium. Seating is still available. The event is free of charge to all Principia students (both campuses), employees, and official retirees. There is a $10 charge (payable by cash or check) for all others at the door.

For alumni and friends throughout the country and worldwide can get a front-row seat by listening live on PIR.
