After hosting the 21st newsrewired event at Reuters in London last week, the Journalism.co.uk team is starting to working on the agenda for the next conference, which will take place in London on 11 July.
In a session powered by Google’s Digital News Initiative at newsrewired on 7 March, we will explore some of the metrics and audience insights powering engagement initiatives at media organisations. How are newsrooms turning these from numbers on a screen to products and services that readers, viewers and listeners will use and that will also benefit the business?
The next newsrewired digital journalism conference takes place on 7 March at Reuters in London, followed by a day of training on 8 March. A limited number of tickets are still available for £180+VAT.
This will be our 21st conference, and as usual, we’re aiming to provide delegates with practical skills and ideas they can take home and explore in their own organisations.
Speakers from De Correspondent, CNN Digital International, NRK, BBC News Labs, Quartz, The Telegraph, Financial Times, Publish.org and more will join us on stage on 7 March to discuss the latest trends and techniques in digital newsgathering and storytelling.

They will share 10 lessons De Correspondent has learned over the last four years, including the ways members contribute more than just their money; the key things they’ve found through their partnership with NYU’s Membership Puzzle Project; and the ongoing challenges they face in relation to both their Dutch platform, and as they look to launch an English-language platform in 2018.
After hosting our 20th newsrewired event at Reuters in London last week, the Journalism.co.uk team is about to start working on the agenda for the next conference, which will take place in London on 7 March.
We will soon be announcing some topics that we plan to discuss on the day – is there anything in particular you’d like to find out more about? You can let us know on Twitter @journalismnews or @newsrewired, or get in touch via email.
In the meantime, we have collected some resources from November’s conference for those of you who couldn’t join us on the day, including speaker presentations, audio from the panels and workshops, and other relevant links.
Today we are happy to announce that Kevin Young, senior social editor at Bloomberg, will be joining our expert line-up on the day as part of the afternoon workshop on making the most of newsroom experiments.
Kevin has been a senior social editor for Bloomberg in London since 2015, managing its Twitter, Facebook and Instagram output to build audiences and engagement both in EMEA and globally.
Previously, he spent 15 years at BBC News as a radio broadcaster, an online journalist and latterly a social media specialist on @BBCBreaking and other high-profile accounts.
At newsrewired, Kevin will be sharing insights into how Bloomberg has launched and grown accounts such as @Brexit on Twitter and @bloombergbusiness on Instagram, how Instagram Stories have become an integral part of the organisation’s social strategy, and how they have developed newsletters to share their in-depth knowledge of specialist subjects.
In this practical session, he will be joining Bo Franklin, social media writer at The Economist, who will talk about The Economist’s strategy for adapting podcasts for social media, and from the title’s approach to resurfacing archive content.
