Why Glasgow?

Glasgow is a significant center for journalism: it is Scotland’s most important location for broadcasting, media, digital and the creative industries, and is home to the headquarters of BBC Scotland, STV and major press titles including The Herald, The Daily Record, The Scottish Sun and Scottish Daily Mail.
Scottish Newspaper Society director and former Scotsman Publications editor-in-chief John McLellan said: "We are thrilled to be able to stage the 2019 World News Media Congress and are confident delegates will find Glasgow and Scotland an appropriately stunning and stimulating host.
"Scotland is steeped in the finest traditions of freedom of expression but also of media innovation -- after all, television and the telephone were both invented by Scots -- and is home to one world’s most competitive and vibrant news markets.”
