Newsonomics is the word he coined to describe this new discipline of understanding the money flow within the print and broadcast transition to digital. His Newsonomics site collects his broadcast appearances, and his work, including his columns for Harvard’s Nieman Journalism Lab.

 

That career followed a 21-year one with Knight Ridder, then the country’s second-largest newspaper company, where he served in a number of top newsroom and digital strategy roles.

 

An early graduate of UC, Santa Cruz, Ken has served as both past president of the UC Santa Cruz Foundation and the UCSC Alumni Council, and continues as a Foundation trustee. A graduate of UCSC, and a 22-year-long volunteer for UCSC, he has focused strongly on undergraduate education, access and preparing the whole student for life and work in the digital age. He now actively supports the advancement of ground-breaking UCSC’s Genomics Institute. Ken also credits his early journalism education at the University of Oregon, where he gained a Master’s in journalism, which launched his career.
