Senior Reporter and Editor for Social Affairs, Munwha Broadcasting Corp., Seoul
Disaster coverage in the new media age Judge
Jaepil Noh has been a reporter at MBC for 15 years but took three years off to produce three television drama series. He returned to the newsroom in the winter of 2009, covering political issues and South Korea's diplomatic affairs. Since 2013, he has been working as a senior reporter and editor on the Social Affairs Team. Noh believes the Korean people and journalists went through hard times because of the sinking of the Sewol ferry last year. The press faced heavy criticisms by making crucial errors when reporting the accident. Noh wants to share his experiences and research to find the right way to cover and report disasters in the new media era.
