In this week’s podcast news editor Rachel McAthy finds out more about the ways digital journalism is being curated and highly personalised for consumers via social magazines and personalised news apps.
She also finds out why news outlets like CNN have decided to invest in such technology, what the potential benefits are for web traffic and business looking forward and why news outlets need to give up control to some extent in order to successfully engage on these platforms.
In this podcast we hear from:
- Peter Bale, general manager, digital, CNN International
- Jim Brady, editor-in-chief, Digital First Media
- Roman Karachinsky, chief executive, News360
