About the speaker

Journalist Kerry Powell has so far survived the Internet’s assault on the news business, mostly by focusing on the opportunities rather than the threats. In her many years as a reporter and editor at the Edmonton Journal, she yammered on and on about how digital tools could bolster journalism, until she was finally asked to leave. Now, as managing editor at Global Edmonton, she hassles TV people about the same things — and they mostly listen! When she’s not at work, she’s wrangling a small herd of humans and one weird dog.
