Finding opportunity in media’s new normal

With the US Presidential election reaching new high-interest levels, news publishers and media outlets played a critical role to ensure their readers and viewers alike were kept up to date with the latest information both locally and globally. Add to this that the 2020 pandemic has led to big shifts in news media consumption. The impact of COVID-19 on businesses, and especially publishers has reached every corner of the industry, meaning technology leadership and teams have had to respond quickly.

Listen in as Nick Rockwell, Fastly’s senior vice president of engineering and the former chief technology officer for the New York Times, speaks with a panel of technology leaders at worldwide digital publishers about how they’re coping with this new normal, and what the future may hold.
