Pietro Supino

Publisher & Chairman of the Board of Directors, Tamedia, Zurich, Switzerland

Apr 10 – Jul 2, 2016. Hosted by Prof. Jay Hamilton, Communication Dept.

Technological development and globalization are changing the base on which traditional mass media companies, and newspaper publishers in particular, used to operate, causing uncertainty but also offering new opportunities. My challenges are to better understand how journalism and the media industry can benefit from the technological development, how legacy media businesses can reinvent themselves, and how their knowledge can be applied to new fields of activities. I am interested in ideas, their potentials, the people behind, their motivations, and culture as an enabling factor.
