Comments on: Is your newsroom ready for the future? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/07/01/is-your-newsroom-ready-for-the-future/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Joe Tarrer http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/07/01/is-your-newsroom-ready-for-the-future/#comment-361115 Fri, 10 Jul 2009 21:06:03 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=17656#comment-361115 Some 30-40 years ago I attend a newspaper conference in Houston, and among other things, we listened to a presentation from a consulting firm on reader desires. Then several minutes later two editors told the audience what the readers wanted.Maybe you’re asking the wrong people for a solution.

Too often recently most major news sources, including especially local news papers, have reverted to mainly providing what I consider “general” news. By this I mean national and international news that is presumed to be of “general” concern. General news, however, can be found anywhere. It is time for journalists to radically reconnect with their audience as particular and local and to seek to address very specific concerns. There are some other great discussions and interviews with and amongst top journalists at http://www.ourblook.com/component/option  ,com_sectionex/Itemid,200076/id,8/view, category/#catid69 which I have also found useful on these issues.
