From social media to publishers’ own websites, online livestreaming is a popular format, allowing audiences a glimpse of places and stories they would otherwise not experience in real time.

TicToc, the first and only global news network streaming live on Twitter, will join Facebook and Reuters at next week’s newsrewired to explore best practices for producing live video online, from ethics and workflows to engagement.

The network broadcasts breaking news reported by the publisher, with video, images and polls taken from Twitter users around the world.

Maggie Day, senior producer, Bloomberg Tic Toc, will join our ‘Live video online’ panel, to discuss how the network has grown since December 2017 to build an audience of 750, 000 viewers a day, and how they plan to reach 2 million daily viewers within the next few months.

Live streams are favoured by social networks as an engaging format worthy of the top of our news feeds, so we have designed this panel to leave delegates with some of the skills and knowledge they need to carry out live streams in their own newsrooms.


Newsrewired takes place on 7 March at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London, and tickets are still available for £180+VAT.

The day will feature a mix of spotlight talks, panels and workshops discussing the latest trends and techniques in digital journalism, and speakers from CNN, Reuters, The Telegraph, FT, De Correspondent and more will be joining us on the day.

Check out the agenda for the conference here.

A focus on practical, hands-on learning has always been at the heart of newsrewired, and Journalism.co.uk will be hosting a full day of training after the main conference in March

Delegates can register to attend the conference (7 March) and one of the full-day courses during the training day (8 March) by purchasing a newsrewired+ ticket.

Newsrewired+ tickets cost £368+VAT. They represent a 10 per cent discount compared to booking tickets for both days separately. Please note the training day on 8 March takes place at The Bridge, 81 Southwark Bridge Road, London SE1 0NQ.
