Create a trust strategy for your news organisation
Mistrust towards the news can come down to many factors: portrayal of communities, fear of being manipulated or even spelling and grammar. What can your newsroom do to restore relationships with readers?
Diversity in the newsroom matters. So we expanded the conference agenda
The news agenda has changed dramatically since we started planning the online Newsrewired conference only a month ago. Lockdown seemed to have dominated every discussion, every news article and, in fairness, our every waking moment.
Newsrewired proudly supports PressPad to foster greater diversity in UK newsrooms
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.
Why Forbes bought UK business publication The Memo as part of its European expansion
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.

Newsrewired sneak peek podcast: diversity, artificial intelligence, and future-proofing journalism
Our Newsrewired digital journalism conference is fast approaching and we are excited about the speaker lineup and the topics we have in store.
To offer you a taster of what is coming on 27 November, we caught up with four of our panellists on this week’s Journalism.co.uk podcast.
Robyn Vinter, editor-in-chief at The Overtake on diversity, business growth and investigative journalism for millennials
At Newsrewired this coming November, we will hear from four newsrooms that are hiring diverse talent because there are genuinely good business reasons to do so, like bolstering your reporting and being trusted by the public.
One of those practising this idea is Robyn Vinter, editor-in-chief, The Overtake, an investigative journalism website for millennials and Gen-Zers run by a team of reporters based in Leeds, Yorkshire.
In the first two years of running the publication, Vinter has built a part-time team of nine from scratch and created a platform which aspires to be “the opposite of the straight, white, middle-aged, middle-class mainstream media”.
Vinter spoke to Journalism.co.uk about The Overtake, the advantages of forming a diverse newsroom and what delegates can expect from hearing her speak at Newsrewired.
