News Corp Australia executive chairman Michael Miller will deliver the opening keynote at the start of WAN-Ifra’s World News Media Congress in Taiwan.
The event, from June 28-30, takes members to the capital of one of the world’s most digitally wired nations at a critical time for the country.
Local partner for the event is United Daily News, Taiwan’s largest privately-operated Chinese-language media group, with editions in North America and Southeast Asia.
Miller (right) is one of three new speakers announced today. He is joined by New York Times editor Joseph Kahn and multi-award-winning reporter and columnist Patrícia Campos Mello from Brazil.
Miller is credited with leading News Corp Australia to the milestone of one million paid subscriptions, reaching more than 15 million Australians a month through its diverse portfolio. He will present a case study on how they created a sustainable media business, through successful leadership through a changing media landscape.
Campos Mello has been a key figure in tracking and exposing political disinformation and propaganda spread via WhatsApp, making her a target of hate speech and attacks, including from former president Jair Bolsonaro.
WAN-Ifra says the Congress will provide a platform for sharing experiences, finding solutions, and celebrating successes. More information at the Congress website.
