Last week we announced that Journalism.co.uk and Google News Initiative have partnered to offer 30 local journalists the opportunity to attend the Newsrewired conference.
We have received nearly 50 applications in one week alone, which shows how much demand for support there is from bootstrapped, regional newsrooms.

We discussed more ways in which Google supports journalists in last week’s podcast with Madhav Chinnappa, director of news ecosystem development at Google. From financing innovative news projects around the world through Google News Initiative to launching free tools that help journalists verify online content, the tech platform is making an effort to build bridges with the media industry.

Google is not the only big tech company looking to empower local journalism in the UK. Following the launch of its Community News Project earlier this year, Facebook has trained the first cohort of freshly recruited local journalists to help spark innovation in regional newsrooms.

We are pleased to announce that Sarah Marshall, head of audience growth at Vogue International, will be our keynote speaker at the upcoming newsrewired conference in November.

Audience growth is the key aim of every news organisation. Figuring out not only who follows your content but who will pay attention to it next is key for staying on top of your game.

Since Facebook changed its news feed algorithm, it has become harder for news organisations to gain traffic from platform shares.

In her keynote speech at newsrewired in London on 7 November 2018, Sarah Marshall will share her best tips on widening your pool of readers and spotting new trends in content sharing.

She will talk data, key performance indicators (KPIs), plans and targets; patterns in traffic and reader behaviour; the Facebook algorithm and the growth of search; and how Vogue is engaging audiences on Instagram and Snapchat.
