Started in 2017, TMR has grown into South Asia's largest media forum. It brings together leading news professionals, tech innovators, policymakers, filmmakers, and investors from across the world to discuss the future of news, tech and policy.Read more
From news to cinema, the forum will explore issues the media has grappled with in the last one year. Our media sessions include key subjects, ranging from gender in newsrooms to climate journalism to journalist safety.
Tech is central to the rapid digital transformation taking place in media and the world.
We discuss digitising education and use of technology for sustainable business models, its conflicts and the opportunities it presents for the media industry.
How a news organisation makes money is central to the kind of journalism outlets do. A revenue model may either compromise an outlet’s editorial standards or give it spine to report freely without any pressure. This year, we look at what’s now increasingly the dominant news stream for most publishers – subscription revenue. We discuss subscription fatigue and what outlets can do to stand out in a price sensitive market like India.
“At a time when objective, fact-based journalism is imperilled, The Media Rumble provided ample evidence that facts matter and that quality journalism in India will not only survive but thrive and prosper.”
“The Media Rumble was an impressive event. It took me days to shake off all that I experienced at the forum, to return to my work. It was one of the best conferences I had been to, where the energy was infectious.”
“What a fantastic conference! I had an incredible experience. So many interesting insights and fascinating people. Thank you so much for having me. I hope that I was able to contribute even just a little.”
“मीडिया रंबल एक अहम इवेंट हैं ख़ास तौर पर जब हाशिए पर खड़े समाज, महिलाओं और विविधता की बात आती है। मीडिया जगत के तथाकथित “ऊंची जाति” लोगों को हाशिए पर खड़े लोगों से सुनना चाहिए और सीखना चाहिए, न केवल मुख्य धारा की मीडिया को जिसे लोग रात दिन न्यूज रूम में विविधता पर कोसते हैं बल्कि स्थापित डिजिटल मीडिया को भी।”
“The media rumble has spawned a new narrative of inclusive India, reaching out to all segments of its population and empowering those often unheard or ignored to claim their space and share their stories.”
“The Media Rumble is an important event because it’s a critique from within…the media is looking within, but it’s also asking others to look at itself, particularly at a time like this when the media is playing a very crucial role in shaping public opinion.”
“A platform like this gives us a chance to interact with people within the fraternity, come together, and come up with solutions and ways in which we can tackle this kind of crisis that is happening.”
