Keeping it Fresh: How Noozhawk is Making a Difference, for Santa Barbara and the News Media

Bill Macfadyen will talk candidly about his journalism journey, mistakes he’s made and lessons he’s learned, and how Noozhawk got to this point and where it goes from here.
He’ll also share his thoughts on “fake news” as well as what he considers to be a much bigger threat to our community, and our country.

Bill Macfadyen is the founder and publisher of Noozhawk, Santa Barbara County’s No. 1 source for local news and information.
He spent the first half of his career in Fossil Media, including 15 years as a senior editor of Santa Barbara’s daily newspaper and three more at the helm of the ill-fated weekly South Coast Beacon.
For the last 12 years he’s been in the vanguard of the digital disruption and running his own business – proving that the second act is more exciting, and a lot more fun, than the first.
