Conversation starts at 6.30pm
The Boardroom, Westminster University, Regent Street, W1
Will Sky News be an unintended casualty of the Murdoch/Fox bid for the rest of Sky they do not own? Is a 'spun-off’ Sky News sustainable?
Would Disney, who are trying to buy Sky from Fox, fund a loss-making channel? Under Fox or Disney does Sky News have a long-term future?
All big questions.All, hopefully, answered by an expert panel. The following are confirmed, with more names to follow:
- Stewart Purvis CBE, Former Chief Executive and Editor-in-Chief of ITN and OfCom Partner (Chair)
- Adam Boulton, Editor at Large, Sky News
- Sam Taylor, Executive Editor, BBC News Channel
- Professor Steven Barnett, University of Westminster
- David Elstein, Head of Programming at Sky 1993-1996
- Alice Enders, Enders Analysis
- John O'Loan, Launch Editor of Sky News, 1989
