New platforms for delivering news content seem to emerge every day – while publishers’ resources continue to shrink. That situation calls for fresh organisational thinking. The Seattle Times
has abandoned the conventional print/online distinction, and organized staff by position in the news reporting process: creation, curation and community.
Mr Boardman will inform participants about his news operation at the 19th World Editors Forum
in a session on 'Beyond integration,' along with Raju Narisetti of the Wall Street Journal
, Martin Jönsson of Svenska Dagbladet
, and Juan Señor of Innovation Media Consulting Group.
The World Editors Forum
will be held concurrently with the 64th World Newspaper Congress
in Kiev. More than 1 000 newspaper publishers, chief editors and other senior newspaper executives from more than 100 countries are expected to attend the Congress and Forum, the global summit meetings of the world’s press organised by the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA).
An interview with Boardman, along with background information about speakers, the venue, and some of the hot topics to be examined, can be found on the WAN-IFRA Congress and Forum blog, www.wan-ifra.org/kiev2012_blog
