The Armenian-American Press in Perspective: What role does the Armenian-American press serve today? Whom does it serve? What does its future look like? The panel discussion featuring Leeza Arakelian (Assistant Editor, Armenian Weekly), Alin K. Gregorian (Editor, Armenian Mirror-Spectator), and Stephen Kurkjian (Pulitzer Prize winner, Boston Globe, and NAASR Board Member) was moderated by Weekly columnist and NAASR Board Member Stepan Piligian. During the Q & A, they were joined by Weekly editor Pauline Getzoyan and Mirror-Spectator assistant editor Aram Arkun.

This was the first time NAASR had held a program focused on this important subject since the 1970s! It was clearly a topic that resonated with the community as close to 150 people attended. You can read more about the program in coverage in the Armenian Mirror-Spectator.
