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.
