With only seven weeks to go until the next newsrewired event, we are pleased to announce three new speakers joining our panels.
Harriet Oliver and Julie Taylor are joint editors of a recently-launched BBC news programme for children in Africa, What’s New. Aimed at 11-16 year olds, the informative and entertaining show also gives young people the chance to tell their own stories.
They will discuss how complex issues can be made relevant to a young audience, the importance of giving young people a voice and explore whether television can remain relevant in the digital age.
They will be joining McKenna Grant, Snapchat senior content editor, The Telegraph, Imriel Morgan, CEO and co-founder, ShoutOut Network, and Ellen Stewart, head of content at PinkNews, in a session looking at what Generation Z (13-24), who never knew life without smartphones, wants from news organisations.
Pete Clifton, editor-in-Chief, Press Association, is responsible for PA’s editorial content across all formats. He also leads the continuing transformation of the agency to a digital-focused, multi-platform business.
Pete will talk about the AI-powered tool RADAR (Reporters and Data and Robots), an automated news service that provides local and regional news outlets with localised stories drawn from open data sets. Content generated by the service during its three-month trial — nearly 38,000 pieces — has been made available to over 1000 news desks.Read the full story »
