Wits Journalism invites you to the launch of State of the Newsroom 2018.
The latest edition of the annual State of the Newsroom Report, under the theme Structured/unstructured, will feature insights on topics including the crisis at the SABC and what happens to journalists when they lose their jobs? The launch will include a panel debate on the future of journalism titled Journalism is dead. Long Live Journalism. Over the last year, we have seen continuing staff reductions in major newsrooms and a decline in original reporting. We have also seen the launch of two digital only titles and a new 24-hour TV news channel. But new sustainable business models for journalism in digital media remain elusive. There are so many exciting possibilities but so little evidence of a bright future. So where should we be looking for the new paths that could lead to a healthy future for journalism and journalists? What could and what should a new media look like?Add event to calendar
