    What should we expect from journalism in 2024?

    What should we expect from journalism in 2024?

    In this episode of Future of Journalism we discuss what the biggest trends are shaping journalism in 2024. 2024 promises to be a significant year in journalism. The rapid rollout of generative AI presents new opportunities to enhance journalistic processes but also potential risks. The decline of the platform referral model is forcing newsrooms to look at building more direct links with audiences using a wider range of multimedia formats. And a host of world-changing news events keep newsrooms asking themselves the best way to engage core audiences without alienating others. We discuss all this and more with the author of a yearly report tracking the fundamental trends shaping journalism and how news leaders plan to negotiate them in the year ahead.

    Speakers:
    Our guest is Nic Newman, Senior Research Associate at the Reuters Institute and lead author of the report Journalism, Media and Technology Trends and Predictions 2023.

    Our host is Federica Cherubini, Director of Leadership Development at the Reuters Institute.
