University of the Pacific President Pamela A. Eibeck will lead a conversation with Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr., chairman of The New York Times Company, at noon Friday, Oct. 26 at the UOP campus in Stockton.
The event is free and open to the public.
The topic will be “The Impact of Media and Truth on Democracy.” The hour will include time for questions and answers.
The current chair of the board of The New York Times Company, Sulzberger served as publisher for 25 years. During that time, he transformed The Times into an international, digital-first news organization with a global audience of more than 130 million people and 3.5 million paid subscriptions. Early in his tenure, he led the push to take the paper national and, in 1996, launched nytimes.com. Under his leadership, The Times won 61 Pulitzer Prizes, doubling the paper’s total Pulitzer count.
