47th Murrow Symposium

April 4-5, 2023 | Add to Calendar

The Murrow Symposium is a series of events designed for high-level discussion, leading innovation and strategy development for thought leaders who are passionate and influential in the world of communication. Panels, master classes, and workshops will bring communication industry leaders from across the state and country together to discuss this year’s theme of “Legacy of Truth: Communication with Courage.”

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and former New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet will receive the Murrow Lifetime Achievement Award in Journalism and deliver the keynote speech on Tuesday, April 4. For more than 47 years, Baquet has served as a champion of truth, not just in journalism, but across all forms of communication. In his distinguished career, he has not only won numerous awards for his reporting, but as an editor who created his own legacy while promoting and defending the careers of others and fighting for integrity across the industry.
