One of the reasons why the public increasingly mistrusts the media is that journalists are spending less time outside of their London offices, losing touch with what interests, inspires and bothers people outside the capital.
To see whether local reporting can bring the media and their audiences closer together, HuffPost made a bold move and transferred its entire newsroom of 45 reporters and editors to Birmingham for a week in the summer of 2018, as part of the ‘HuffPost Listens’ project.
“We wanted to get outside the London bubble and show that, as a news organisation, we’re open, accessible, and committed to reporting on the impact of politics and policy outside of Westminster,” explained Basia Cummings, news editor, HuffPost UK.
Many of those who stopped by the HuffPost newsroom in Birmingham told the journalists they feel increasingly ignored and voiceless.
Jess Brammar, head of news, HuffPost UK, who oversaw this project, will be joining the ‘Local news: breaking out of the London bubble’ panel.
We are pleased to announce more confirmed speakers ahead of our newsrewired conference on 6 March 2019 at Reuters, London, UK.
