New tools, devices and technologies have proven to be powerful in reshaping journalism, whether in content distribution and consumption or in the newsroom structure itself.

Where: TMX Broadcast Centre - Gallery, 130 King St. W., The Exchange Tower, Toronto
When: Thursday, January 31, Registration: 6:30 p.m. / Discussion: 7:00 p.m. / Reception: 8:30 p.m.
