How the Newsrewired team is supporting you in these uncertain times

| March 27, 2020 – 3:38 pm | 214 views

While most of us have set up our workstations inside our homes, many journalists are out in the streets, keeping on serving their communities when they need them the most.

Whatever your current setup, you may still be struggling to adjust to the new routine. What tools can you use to replicate your work in the physical newsroom? How to keep your audience up to date without overwhelming them? How to stay motivated and, crucially, sane? 

As the future of in-person events is still unclear, we are stepping up our online efforts to cover the stories that matter the most to the journalism community right now.

Covid-19 update: let’s make our community stronger during these strange times

| March 19, 2020 – 2:57 pm | 357 views
If there is one thing we know for sure during these uncertain times, it is that the things will not be back to normal within a few days or weeks.

 

For the past 10 years, Newsrewired has been bringing the digital publishing community together to share knowledge, make new contacts and start new collaborations that foster innovation in the sector.

 

With a bit more than 10 weeks to go to the planned date for Newsrewired – 4 June – we are looking at how to continue this mission. It is becoming increasingly clear that the UK may continue to face restrictions on large gatherings or using public transport, including international travel, over the next few months.

 

The safety of our delegates and our staff is a priority and the conference venue, The Lowry, has its own task group who are constantly meeting and reviewing the situation, based on government recommendations around the covid-19 pandemic and through direct contact with the chief medical officer for Salford. The Lowry has completed risk assessments and action plans to identify issues and what can be done to overcome them, from staffing levels to supply chain.

 

At the core, Newsrewired is your event. Every year, the Journalism.co.uk editorial team works hard to bring you the latest knowledge in the industry and stimulate important conversations to help us all further our essential work.

 

We listen to you. Please complete this short survey (3 questions, 30 seconds) to let us know your thoughts and help us shape the future of Newsrewired events in the months to come. Thank you.

As half of publishers bet on reader revenue as their main source of income in 2020, there is no hiding from the fact that news is no longer largely subsidised by advertising. Newsrooms are increasingly in charge of developing new, engaged audiences, as well as understanding metrics and creating new revenue streams.

We are pleased to announce that George Brock, a journalist, consultant, and visiting professor at City, University of London, will be joining the panel that will zoom in on different revenue options. Speakers will also shed light on what kind of revenue is best suited for what newsroom, inspiring the delegates to explore new ways to make their work sustainable.

94 per cent of UK journalists are white. 86 per cent have gone to university. 78 per cent of 18-34- year-olds cannot afford to live in London, away from home, to do unpaid internships and get their foot in the door. PressPad is trying to change that.
