Joe Sciacca, Editor-in-Chief, The Boston Herald, won rave reviews when he spoke to BWC in January, 2014, with Dr. Tom Fiedler, Dean of BU’s College of Communications. They led us through the future of the media – transforming from print to the smartphone. It was a great learning moment; we need an update.
On Thursday, April 27, we’ll be in Joe’s good company again at their new headquarters in the Seaport. We'll learn about the prospects for women in Journalism - and the future of the Herald. Join BWC for this special road trip. Joe will give a fascinating tour of their newsroom, radio station, video and photo studios, plus their Pulitzer photos collection -and incredible archives,
A panel of the Herald’s women journalists and executives will address their experiences and the obstacles they faced while advancing their careers in publishing.
Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
Street parking is available, there is a $$s parking lot - and many of us will be taking the Silver Line out and back to the World Trade Center.
(After the tour and panel at the Herald, some of us plan to visit one of the newer restaurants in the Seaport area.)

In 2016, Franklin Pierce University awarded Sciacca its Fitzwater Medallion for Leadership in Public Communication - citing him as a “disruptor” in the media industry. “Sciacca’s resume yields a portrait of a solid journalist who came up through the ranks with the smell of newsprint trailing him,” said Franklin Pierce President Andrew H. Card Jr. “But the source of his success (is) disruption and reaching both new markets and providing alternatives to the existing print paper.” He noted the creation of Boston Herald Radio and other video, digital and social media initiatives in transforming the Herald into a multimedia news organization. “Sciacca has fearlessly explored the potential of technology in journalism, assembled a top staff that can produce articulate and incisive content across platforms simultaneously and distributes that content in ways that reach today’s news consumers when they need it and where they look for it, which is more than likely online, on a smartphone.”
