The first news:rewired event took place on 14 January 2010 at City University London.
news:rewired was a one-day event for working journalists, trainees, journalism students and academics to learn new multimedia, social media and online skills from those with first-hand experience. It provided first-hand advice on using new technologies, tools and skills for online journalism and practical case studies from those who are pioneering new techniques in journalism.
news:rewired was brought to you by Journalism.co.uk, the UK’s essential site for journalists. It was supported by the BBC College of Journalism, the Press Association, Cision, AudioBoo and Blinked.TV.
“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.
