“There has never been a more exciting time to be a journalist,” said Channel 4 news presenter Jon Snow earlier this year.

It’s fair to say there’s never been a more challenging time either, as economic, social and technological developments irreversibly change the shape of the newsroom and the face of the media landscape.

To help the industry navigate its way through this new terrain, Journalism.co.uk is pleased to introduce news:rewired, a brand new one-day journalism event for 2010 at City University. We’re gathering together some of the best people on the UK digital news scene to present what they do and how they do it. Everyone is welcome, whether from one-person media enterprises to large news organisations.
