Four new speakers will be joining us at newsrewired on 6 March 2019
We are pleased to announce more confirmed speakers ahead of our newsrewired conference on 6 March 2019 at Reuters, London, UK.
Latest confirmed speakers include:
Keynote | Future of digital innovation: personalised content, voice, and dynamic paywalls
Rouven Leuener is group head of digital product at Neue Zürcher Zeitung, one of the oldest German-language newspapers. He took the lead on digital innovation five years ago and, during this time, he launched digital products that attracted new online subscribers and turned the newspaper around.
Among NZZ’s latest innovations is a text-to-speech audio player feature that converts written articles into audio. The publisher is now looking at new ways to monetise this audio content and grow its subscribers base.
Local news: Breaking out of the London bubble
Jess Brammar, head of news at HuffPost UK, will be joining the panel ‘Local news: Breaking out of the London bubble.’
Earlier this year, Brammar spearheaded the HuffPost Listens project that saw the publisher’s entire newsroom of 45 reporters and editors move to Birmingham for a week and tell local stories.
“One of the reasons why the public increasingly mistrusts the media is that journalists are spending less time outside of their London offices, losing touch with what interests, inspires and bothers people outside the capital,” Journalism.co.uk wrote about the project. Read more
Matthew Barraclough is a head of Local News Partnerships at BBC. He has been a journalist since 1995, working mainly in the North East of England in a number of roles including reporter, programme producer and eventually Editor of BBC Tees, the local radio station in Middlesbrough.
