From battling disinformation to dealing with online abuse and mental health crisis, journalists around the globe are feeling the impact of the covid-19 pandemic.
At our digital journalism conference Newsrewired this week (1 December 2020), Julie Posetti, global research director of the International Centre for Journalist (ICFJ), gave a keynote speech on how covid-19 has impacted both journalists and news organisations, with one eye on how to enter 2021 with renewed strength and determination.

Newsroom leaders and industry experts discussed how the crisis brought new opportunities to experiment and innovate.
Regional publisher Reach Plc had to juggle new working practices and furloughed staff with the launch of new websites. Meanwhile the BBC pressed ahead with smart speaker technology during the pandemic.

Like many others in the industry, Journalism.co.uk decided to bring Newsrewired digital journalism conference to your computer screens instead of a physical venue due to the covid-19 pandemic. We swapped out plans to host the event in Manchester for a four-day series of discussions on Zoom – all while adjusting to working from home ourselves.
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.
The way we frame the problem has a lot to do with the solutions we end up with.

We are very pleased to announce that Justin Ferrell, the founder of the professional fellowship program at the Institute of Design at Stanford University (the d.school), will be the keynote speaker at the upcoming Newsrewired conference on 29 June 2020.
With the start of social distancing policies as a response to the covid-19 crisis, newsrooms have quickly had to reconfigure as distributed, digital spaces. We are going to be working within distributed frameworks for a significant amount of time, far beyond the immediate crisis and disruption the start of this outbreak has caused.
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.
