Staying Relevant in a Fast-Changing Journalistic World
In a media landscape where production and consumption of news have undergone rapid changes with competition, evolving work cultures and technological changes, staying relevant is a challenge.
The dividing line between print, broadcast and digital news media has become blurred. News cycle has become as much about speed, as accuracy. The digital turn has led to the spread of misinformation, something that the news media encounter and combat. With the rise of the social media, even the news audiences have changed. People can now comment on journalistic work on social media platforms, and have multiple choices in terms of content, leading to shrinking attention span.
However, the challenges themselves make the journey memorable for those who have stayed ahead of the curve.
Join us for an insightful conversation on ways of adapting to each change in workplace cultures, technology, and audiences’ tastes.
