Emily Stone, VP, digital content operations at Fox Owned Stations; Mike Fass, VP, broadcast technology at Gray Television; and Fabian Westerwelle, senior manager, news acquisition center at ABC News will join moderator Glen Dickson, TVNewsCheck technology writer, for a panel grappling with the ongoing challenges of seamless multiplatform news production on Dec. 16 from 3 to 3:45 p.m. at the New York Hilton.

“Since the very first NewsTECHForum seven years ago, our speakers and attendees have ranked multiplatform workflow, and technology’s ability to facilitate it, as one of their top concerns,” said Kathy Haley, TVNewsCheck’s co-founder and publisher. “The Multiplatform Workflow Without the Pain panel has been assembled to update the industry on progress toward this goal.”

Set for Dec. 16-17 at the New York Hilton, NewsTECHForum will bring together engineering, news, production and digital leaders to discuss excellence in news storytelling and news workflow. Veteran broadcaster Greta Van Susteren and Black News Channel’s VP of News Gary Wordlaw are this year’s keynote interviews.
