Reuters Editors

Our editors & readers talk

Content, convergence and creativity


The following speech was given at the Association of Online Publishers conference in London on October 7. Chris Cramer is Reuters Global Editor, Multimedia.

In the spirit of a real debate I’d like to talk today about some trends in the so-called traditional media.

But I can see you sitting out there and thinking: “Here we have a traditional mainstream media guy.” And I’m happy to own up to 40 years or so working for mainstream companies:

The BBC for 26 years – always in news.

CNN for 11 years – always in news and channel management.

And now at Reuters — this time head of multimedia in a business which primarily serves the financial professional.
