Inside the Media Minds Special Edition: The JEDI Contract – A Roundtable Discussion with Ross Wilkers, Frank Konkel and Carten Cordell

On this week’s episode of Inside the Media Minds, we host a roundtable discussion with Ross Wilkers of Washington Technology, Frank Konkel of Nextgov and Carten Cordell of the Washington Business Journal to discuss the ongoing saga of the JEDI Contract.

All three reporters have covered the JEDI contract from a different lens and followed the story closely throughout the past few years. Tune in to hear each of their thoughts on:

  • What made JEDI so controversial, mainstream and unlike most contracts
  • What are the implications of the Microsoft win and impact on other companies involved
  • How the drama will continue to play out

We learn about “JEDI Friday”, how the day-to-day coverage of the contract unfolded for each of their respective publications and how it impacted readership. 

The evolution of JEDI has evolved with many twists and turns since Day One. According to Cordell, “whenever you thought you knew where the story was going, there would be a twist.”
