This week’s guest on W2 Communications’ podcast, “Inside the Media Minds,” is Troy Schneider, Editor-in-Chief of Federal Computer Week (FCW) and Government Computer News (GCN). Along with hosts Christine Blake and Evan Weisel, Troy discusses the numerous publications he oversees and even breaks some news regarding GCN’s awards program! The show takes a nostalgic turn when a 1999 edition of FCW finds its way into the studio, leading Troy to break down the evolution of print and digital platforms. Other highlights from the episode include:
- Troy describes how the federal reporting landscape has changed for FCW and GCN since moving from exclusively print to digital; breaking down the pros and cons of online publishing
- He discusses GCN’s Government Innovation Awards, outlining the basic concept and back story on the program, and its rebranding in 2018
- Troy believes federal modernization as well as transformation will continue to dominate the headlines in his publications. AI and machine-learning are also topics his readers will see much more of in the near future
