Collaboration and the Open Newsroom

Monday, March 16
9:30AM - 10:30AM

Hyatt Regency Austin
Zilker Ballroom 1
208 Barton Springs Rd


Technology has opened the doors for newsrooms. No longer can media cover all the most relevant news on their own. The expansion of content worth covering and the increased specialization among newsrooms has opened an opportunity for media companies to complement their core competencies by sharing, trading and working with companies of other specializations.

The challenges are working productively with collaborators and competitors, deciding which responsibilities are best completed by a third party, knowing when another news organization will benefit your viewers and readers and trusting contributions from outside vendors, among other topics.

Representatives from The New York Times, The Young Turks, ABC News, and The Guardian will discuss how the opening of the newsroom to new technology changes how they operate. Panel attendees will learn best practices for welcoming other organization into their newsrooms and collaborating with other media.
