With half of publishers betting 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.
