Tran Ha- Knight Foundation Fellow
Tran asks the audience to yell out what they associate with millennials. “Young” “Selfie” “Falcon”(?). Tran adds Justin Beiber, entitlement and says eventually the phrase, “I just don’t get why ____…” comes up.
She asks, what does the future of news and innovation look like for this group? Are we destined to a future of grumpy cat memes? As a fellow this year she looked at what millennials pay attention to. What are their needs? What is important to them? How do they define news?
Tran shares an anecdote from an interview of a young man who gets his news is more than information channels. He says that news comes from more places than TV, radio, etc. To him, news is what he sees on Instagram.
