This year, Recode’s annual Code Media conference is in Hollywood — where it’s all happening. Recode’s Senior Media Correspondent Peter Kafka hosts the tech and media conference each year. This year we will examine big-picture industry trends and what they mean for the entire media ecosystem.
Peter Kafka and Recode’s expert reporting staff will discuss some of the biggest questions facing the media world today:
- Fake news, virality, and public trust: We’ll take an honest look at the spread of fake news, efforts to combat it, and what responsibilities tech and media companies have to address it.
- Who’s buying who and why it matters: We’ve seen several recent major media acquisitions — AT&T/Time Warner, Disney/Fox, Meredith/Time, Inc. — and we’re going to ask how they are reshaping the landscape as legacy companies compete with big tech.
- Content creation and distribution in the shadow of big tech: We’ll look at how Amazon, Netflix, and Apple are changing the content creation and distribution strategies of studios.
The Code Media conference kicks off on Monday, November 18, in Los Angeles. Every onstage interview will be available to stream on demand on Recode’s YouTube channel after each session.
