Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this JulieAnn. There’s some interesting thoughts in this space around “Slow News” — I spoke on a panel about this last year. Here’s a link to my thoughts from that session: http://mediashift.org/2017/04/slow-news-taking-time-listen-focus-can-help-journalism/ — you’ll find some good synergies there, I hope!
Agreed, we have some new research coming out showing a very high take-up of live video usage at small papers. And, as you say, they’re experimenting — and using all of the tools you described. In this day and age, you have to. Making it pay, of course, is another matter. (But, arguably you can’t afford not to be using these different distribution channels.)
Thanks Jason, I don’t disagree. It’s just that our project is focusing on newspapers, rather than the wider local media ecosystem. But, yes, lots of great journalism can be found across a range of different platforms.
