About the author
Hi! My name is Faye and I will be your guide through Amsterdam for the day! Enjoys randomness chat, good banter and will help you find the best dealers in fun, food and adventure.

My parents still have one, but to my knowledge none of my mates do and I currently do not have the budget to attain one either. At least not on a monthly basis. Newspapers. A ritual that only a few years back was as fixed to most people as a cup of coffee in the morning. Yet times are a changing and so is the necessity of news on paper. Thanks to our good friend the internet and fancy iPads the future of the newspaper is questionable and not as clear as it once used to be.

This Wednesday De Verdieping is kicking off their new series called ‘The Future of the Newspaper’. Together with media experts they try to find solutions for the future of traditional media, discuss the developments in journalism, media technology and find out how the modern audience obtains their daily dose of news.

The night will start with the first part of News War, a documentary that talks about the downfall of American journalism. Followed by a debate with Juha van ‘t Zelfde and Hans Aarsman. Aarsman used to work as a photographer and journalist for Dutch newspapers Trouw, NRC and De Volkskrant. To get to know Aarsman a little better see his performance at Ted:
