In this week’s Journalism.co.uk podcast technology editor Sarah Marshall speaks to key industry figures about the skills journalists need in today’s digital newsroom.

She speaks to:

  • Steve Herrmann, editor, BBC News Online
  • Alison Gow, editor of the Daily Post and DailyPost.co.uk, North Wales
  • Aron Pilhofer, editor of interactive news, New York Times
  • Mark Little, founder and chief executive of social news agency Storyful

The four share their advice on the skills needed, explaining why a journalist needs to be a jack of all trades, and tell us whether or not shorthand is still a required skill.

You can hear future podcasts by signing up to the Journalism.co.uk iTunes podcast feed.
