The world’s largest news organization, the BBC, is reinventing itself for a digital, on-demand age. Rachel Nixon is one of those tasked with bringing TV, radio and the Internet together to deliver big stories across multiple and emerging platforms. Find out why it’s no longer enough simply to write a good story and how journalists can remain relevant to their audiences in a converged world.
Who knows, by Tuesday there may still be some Northern Voicers hanging around, unable to tear themselves away from the endowment lands. They’ll be the ones with the Mac laptops and Kris Krug Fanclub T-Shirts.
By the way, Alf (who’s a prof at the UBC SOJ) has agreed to a blog Q&A with me, so look for that here soon.
