The Confluence – where the news comes together is 90.5 WESA’s weekly news program.

Each week reporters, editors and bloggers join veteran journalist, and host, Kevin Gavin. They’ll go behind the headlines taking an in-depth look at the stories important to the Pittsburgh region.

This week a panel of journalists and editors join us for a special edition of The Confluence. As the final print edition of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review rolls off the press, we’ll look at the changing media landscape.

How is social media impacting the way we get our news? Who’s doing the in-depth investigations we’ve come to expect from newspapers? We’ll address those topics and more over the course of the hour with the following panel of journalists:

Mila Sanina – Executive Director, PublicSource

Jeremy Boren – Digital Managing Editor, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Harold Hayes – Retired reporter, KDKA

Ben Howard – Assistant Managing Editor for Digital Design, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
