Journalist Dean Baquet of the New York Times is in conversation. Baquet discusses a wide range of topics regarding the news and journalism. Since 2007, the U.C. Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism’s Investigative Reporting Program has hosted a “by invitation only” symposium each spring in honor of the Reva and David Logan Foundation, which endowed the program. The only symposium of its kind in the country, it routinely brings together a veritable “who’s who” of top journalists, law enforcement and government officials to address the critical issues confronting this specialized field. The symposium also unites media executives involved in both non-profit and commercial outlets, as well as media attorneys, academics, major foundations, and philanthropists who support journalism in the public interest."
Dean Baquet is executive editor of the New York Times, the top position in the newsroom. He assumed the role on May 14, 2014, succeeding Jill Abramson, who left the post.
