The Spectator Event Series is presented by the Columbia Daily Spectator, the undergraduate newspaper of Columbia University. In 2012, we launched our first event, the Columbia Media Conference — a day long journalism summit featuring leaders on both the content and business side of the industry. The inaugural conference featured over 20 speakers — including Paul Steiger, the former Managing Editor of the Wall Street Journal and the Executive Chairman of ProPublica. Since then the Spectator Event Series has grown to include events on topics such as careers in the arts and sports media. We’re continuing to add new events each year and we’re excited to bring these events to the Columbia community.
