While most of us have set up our workstations inside our homes, many journalists are out in the streets, keeping on serving their communities when they need them the most.
Whatever your current setup, you may still be struggling to adjust to the new routine. What tools can you use to replicate your work in the physical newsroom? How to keep your audience up to date without overwhelming them? How to stay motivated and, crucially, sane?
As the future of in-person events is still unclear, we are stepping up our online efforts to cover the stories that matter the most to the journalism community right now.
If there is one thing we know for sure during these uncertain times, it is that the things will not be back to normal within a few days or weeks.
For the past 10 years, Newsrewired has been bringing the digital publishing community together to share knowledge, make new contacts and start new collaborations that foster innovation in the sector.
As half of publishers bet 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.
The upcoming Newsrewired conference, taking place on 4 June at MediaCityUK, will feature a workshop where delegates will learn how to start implementing artificial intelligence (AI) in their everyday journalistic work.
The session will be led by Charlie Beckett, a professor in the Department of Media and Communications and founding director of Polis, the London School of Economics’ international journalism think-tank.
The next Newsrewired digital journalism conference will take place on 4 June 2020 at MediaCityUK in Greater Manchester.
After 10 years of great talks and networking in London, the Journalism.co.uk team is taking the 26th Newsrewired conference to another UK city renowned for innovation in digital publishing – Manchester.
Salford’s MediaCityUK is a thriving media hub: home to BBC, ITV, University of Salford and more than 250 smaller media and digital businesses. We are looking to offer our delegates a high-profile networking opportunity with regional media professionals, as well as a conference programme that brings latest thinking and innovation in digital publishing.
94 per cent of UK journalists are white. 86 per cent have gone to university. 78 per cent of 18-34- year-olds cannot afford to live in London, away from home, to do unpaid internships and get their foot in the door. PressPad is trying to change that.
The acquisition has seen The Memo’s back catalogue of content transferred to Forbes.com, thus making it accessible to 80 million readers worldwide. As the title ceased to exist, its team of 80 has joined Forbes, which allowed the business publisher to expand its network of contributors across the continent to more than 200.
With less than three weeks to go to our Newsrewired conference, spaces are getting tighter so secure your place today – when they are gone, they are gone.
We are very excited to announce that Dmitry Shishkin will be joining us at our upcoming Newsrewired conference as keynote speaker on 27 November 2019 at Reuters, London.
With our conference just around the corner, we put together a short video that rounds up main talking points on the agenda.
Our 25th Newsrewired will, as always, feature a mix of workshops, talks and panel discussions about the latest tools, trends and techniques in digital journalism. Here are five things you will learn.
