The Washington Post’s Marty Baron and 20th Century Fox’s Stacey Snider are coming to Code Media

You should be there, too.

Peter Kafka covers media and technology, and their intersection, at Vox. Many of his stories can be found in his Kafka on Media newsletter, and he also hosts the Recode Media podcast.

Kara Swisher, Walt Mossberg and I have good news to kick off 2017: We’re bringing two of the most important people in the media industry to Code Media in February. You can join us there.

If you want to know how one of the world’s leading newspapers has transformed itself into one of the world’s leading digital publishers, ask Marty Baron: After running the Boston Globe for more than a decade (if you saw “Spotlight,” you saw Liev Schreiber play him) he became the Washington Post’s top editor in 2013 — the same year Jeff Bezos bought it.

Over the last three years, Baron has made the storied paper more popular online without losing any of its clout— right, Donald Trump? Oh — and it’s now profitable, too.

And if you want to know what it’s like to run one of the world’s biggest movie studios in an era defined by enormous blockbuster bets and increasingly fickle audiences, ask Stacey Snider: She’s the longtime Hollywood veteran — DreamWorks, Universal — who’s taking over as CEO at 20th Century Fox. This will be one of her first public appearances since she got the new gig.

Baron and Snider join an amazing lineup of media and tech leaders who’ve signed on for our signature Recode onstage interviews. They include:

Apple media boss Eddy Cue

Amazon video boss Roy Price

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht

Tasty boss Ashley McCollum

National Geographic Channel CEO Courteney Monroe

AwesomenessTV CEO Brian Robbins

Celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson

Google revenue chief Philipp Schindler

Propagate Content CEO Ben Silverman

Stratechery analyst Ben Thompson

And offstage, you’ll have plenty of time to link up with the smart, savvy crowd that joins us every year at Code Media — the people who can help you move your company and your career forward.

Great, right? We agree, which is why we’ll be at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel, Calif., on Feb. 13 and 14. Join us there by signing up here. See you soon.
