The Guardian

Former Editor-In-Chief

Alan Rusbridger is a prime mover in the fast-changing digital revolution from both the news and news management perspectives. As Editor-in-Chief of The Guardian for two decades, he oversaw seminal investigative reporting into the era’s most important government and private sector surveillance leaks and hacks as well as facilitated the newspaper’s dramatic growth from a modest U.K. daily to the key international player in online media with offices now in the US and Australia. Beyond the computer screen, Rusbridger followed his personal passions to make meaningful contributions to the cause of environmental activism, and modeled for broad audiences the value and benefits of making time for creative expression. Alan’s new book on how technology transformed journalism, Breaking News: The Remaking of Journalism and Why It Matter Now, will be available November 2018.
