Workshop: Building a Newsroom Culture

Date: 21-February-2019 

Venue: Hyatt Regency Mumbai

About the workshop

The employees' practice and newsroom cultures illustrate the changing nature of the communicative relationship between journalists and readers operating in a media environment. This development in communicative practices is already yielding changes in traditional newsroom routines and could lead to a shift in the communicative orientation of journalism that puts an emphasis on dialogue, moderation and curation, instead of the unidirectional dissemination of news, a kind of dissemination that might not suffice any longer as a unique characteristic for journalism in the pluralistic information ecosphere of the digital realm.

The conclusion of this workshop will help leaders how to build the newsroom culture, engaging the working reporters and journalists in order to maintain good relationship among the top, middle and lower management to achieve the organization goal.
