Paramount Theatre presents Michael Barbaro
Michael Barbaro hosts The Daily, a five-day-a-week audio podcast from The New York Times. In its first year, the show built an audience of over one million listeners a day. Launching at the dawn of the Trump Presidency, it was Apple Podcast’s most-downloaded new show of 2017.
On stage, Barbaro frames his discussions in much the same way he describes his show: The moment demands an explanation - The Daily is on a mission to find it. Barbaro discusses the creation of The Daily and his journey, as well as his view on the state of journalism today, including the impact of cable versus the rising popularity of podcast audio. He taps into his expertise as a national correspondent to provide audiences with an informed, nonpartisan perspective on the day’s headlines.
