#newsrw: Who’s attending our digital journalism event?

If you’ve been under a rock for the last month and haven’t heard us mention our digital journalism event news:rewired next month, then here’s an idea of who’s going, courtesy of Wordle:

news:rewired is a practical, one-day event at City University London with the aim of giving working journalists relevant and immediately useful advice on multimedia, social media and online business models.

There’s still tickets left, but they’re going fast. If you want to book before the VAT hike, tickets are £80 +VAT and available at this link.

#newsrw: ‘The fact that multimedia is visual is a huge benefit to radio,’ says @newsleader

In the latest Q&A on our news:rewired site, media consultant and top radio tipster Justin Kings describes how radio can make the most of multimedia tools.

The fact that much of multimedia is visual is a huge benefit to radio. We’ve seen how images, videos and so on can help enhance the radio experience. In terms of social media, I would suggest radio is itself a social media. By that I mean it shares similar characteristics, it is personal, it’s interactive and reactive. So, again, tools like Twitter can complement content on the radio.
