A Conversation With Maribel Perez Wadsworth, President, Gannett | USA Today Network

Presented by Mark Challinor, Executive Producer - Interactive, INMA

About this Webinar

Gannett and its 250+ daily newspapers throughout the United States — including its flagship USA Today — has had a lot going on in the past couple of years.
In this members-only Webinar, we will see how the U.S. media company has positioned itself for the year ahead, following the GateHouse/Gannett mega-merger and all amid the challenges that accompanied the pandemic, massive political news throughout United States in the past year, and a wave of social and racial reckoning.
INMA Executive Producer Mark Challinor will talk with Gannett President/Publisher Maribel Perez Wadsworth about how her team led through all of this while still placing a priority on the safety, health, and general well-being of the network’s journalists.
Wadsworth is publisher of USA Today and runs the news division of Gannett, overseeing nearly 5,000 journalists across more than 250 daily publications and USA Today. She has been with Gannett for nearly 25 years, beginning as a reporter at the Rockford (Illinois) Register Star. In 2015, she was named Gannett’s first chief strategy and transformation officer. Wadsworth helped architect the company’s digital subscription strategy and created its Innovation Lab to foster entrepreneurship and human-centered design across the organisation. In 2016, then-U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker appointed Wadsworth to a two-year term on the National Advisory Council on Innovation and Entrepreneurship. She currently serves on the board of directors of the Associated Press, the News Media Alliance, and the International News Media Association (INMA).
