It was a challenging period for newspapers before COVID-19, with at least 1,800 newspapers across the country shutting their doors since 2004. Now, amid the pandemic, newsrooms are facing a new crisis as they adapt to industry changes, decreased advertising, and smaller staffs, many now working remotely.


Queens is home to a diverse range of media outlets, which provide some of the best local coverage our city has. Yet they too have had to adjust to the way they operate to connect with communities and cover news, often while adhering to health and safety measures.


So what does the future hold for media in Queens? What coverage will ramp up, and what will disappear? Will the pandemic be the death knell for more publications here at home? How are newsrooms operating differently?


Queens Chamber of Commerce President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Grech will lead a panel of top media experts from Queens, discussing the state of media in Queens and what the future holds in 2021.
