Moderated by the editor and managing publisher of Atlanta Jewish Times, this session will be an engaging round-table discussion about the changes that media professionals have made to get through the COVID crisis. We will share ideas that are successful and even those that failed. Now that vaccinations have readers getting out of their homes, and advertisers back in business, we begin to pivot again, adjusting to another new normal. What should we as media professional plan for next?
