[Poskod Journalism Campus] What does it mean to be a journalist, editor or publisher working in Malaysia today? We live in digital times, while the influence of print persists. We have internet freedoms, yet still contend with censorship. Social media increasingly drives business and consumption, but where does it leave traditional journalism ethics and skills? We will address these issues and more, hearing from some of the leading voices of journalism today:
  • Rehman Rashid, Former Editor, The New Straits Times
  • Janet Steele, Assoc Professor of Journalism, George Washington University 
  • Steven Gan, Founding Editor, Malaysiakini 
  • Jahabar Sadiq, CEO and Editor, The Malaysian Insider 
  • Wong Siah Ping, COO, Digital Business, The Star 
  • Jason Tan, Editor, The B-Side 
  • Ling Low, Editor, Poskod.my 
  • Wong Chin Huat, Political Columnist, The Nut Graph and FZ.com 
Poskod Journalism Campus is produced by Poskod.my and sponsored by FZ.com. It is presented in partnership with #Word: The Cooler Lumpur Festival. The Poskod Journalism Campus is supported by The British Council Malaysia and US Embassy Kuala Lumpur.
