2015 PMBA Annual Conference Keynote

2015 Keynoter: Tim Griggs, Publisher, COO, Texas Tribune

Tim Griggs is the Publisher and COO of the Texas Tribune, the only member-supported, digital-first, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues. As we explore how public media is “Managing Dynamic Change” throughout the 2015 PMBA Annual Conference, Griggs will discuss during his keynote how the Texas Tribune is creating innovative ways to deliver news, create partnerships, provide data, and produce  events to engage a growing audience.

 Griggs leads the Texas Tribune 's business-side departments and operations. Prior to joining the Texas Tribune, he worked for The New York Times Company for 15 years, most recently as The Times's executive director of cross-platform monetization. In that position, he was responsible for revenue-generating products across The Times’s digital  platforms (web, tablet, smartphone, email, games and video) and led four product teams: paid products, advertising products, email, and e-commerce. He served as The Times director of paid products, where he helped lead its successful digital subscription business, as well as director of strategic planning. Tim spent the bulk of his career as a  journalist, most notably as executive editor at the Wilmington (N.C.) Star-News.
