13:45 Digital Transformation of Newsrooms

With online content appealing to the bigger audience, Newsrooms need to shift gears and accelerate their transformation into digital. To tackle the core changes with minimum disruption Newsroom leaders have to re-organise the processes and deliver new strategies, in order to keep their current audience and also engage new readers. This reader centric vision to publishing is the basis to a steady and efficient digital transformation of the Newsroom.
