Newsroom Burnout: Last Straw for Journalism?

Date TBA

Recording: Newsroom Burnout: Last Straw for Journalism?, Date TBA

Decades of disruption, a relentless news cycle, and news businesses teetering on the edge have left newsrooms exhausted and key staff burned out, especially those tasked with transforming legacy into digital. Burnout, its severity and prevalence, was the stand-out issue in recent research from the Reuters Institute, University of Oxford – and everyone is at risk, from CEO to intern. This panel drills down into this issue. How can journalists project their health and sanity in a scoop-driven 24/7 world, and where the media itself is under concerted attack? Does their own commitment to the field and addiction technology contribute? Are pressures to perform and adapt even higher for those with diverse backgrounds? How serious is this and what do leaders need to do?
