How can you reach the untold stories in your patch? Are there blank spots in local coverage? Can national news outlets be truly representative of the audience they serve and burst through the London or Paris bubble? 

The opening panel at newsrewired on 19 July explores how news organisations of various sizes relate to local news, how they find stories in their communities and how they report beyond the location of their main offices in large cities.

The Journalism.co.uk team is happy to announce two more speakers will be joining us for the session, from Archant and the Hackney Citizen.

Could your election coverage use a refresh? Are you striking the right balance between covering the day-to-day goings on in Parliament and covering the concerns of constituents? Do you think political journalism is in dire need of new approaches and some innovation?

With the next newsrewired digital journalism conference fast approaching (19 July, London), the Journalism.co.uk team has added a new panel to the agenda to help delegates find answers to the questions above.

Speakers from The Telegraph and Reuters will discuss their organisations’ take on election coverage, the role polls should play in the reporting, the ‘surprise’ factor in the result of the EU Referendum, the US election, and the UK general election, and the current state of political journalism.

If you’re interested in dropping by the Facebook help desk at newsrewired, please keep an eye on your email inbox – we’ll send you a short form over the next few days to find out which areas of discussion are of interest to you in order to make sure the help desk is staffed with the specialists you need.

Newsrewired takes place on 19 July at the Reuters office in Canary Wharf, London, and tickets cost £180+VAT. 

Practical learning is at the heart of the event, and attendees will hear about the latest trends and techniques in digital journalism through a mixture of panels, workshops and spotlight talks throughout the day.
