How journalists manage information: from leads to stories

How journalists manage information: from leads to stories | Media Tomorrow | Scoop.it
5 years ago I wrote about a network infrastructure for journalists working online. I explained how RSS readers, social networks and social bookmarking were being increasingly used to improve on the roles that newswires, contacts books and archives played in the traditional newsroom. Well here's an update: not only is that infrastructure now a reality,…

SMART RADIO: Radio RTBF strives to define tomorrow’s radio with Lawo crystal and VisTool

SMART RADIO: Radio RTBF strives to define tomorrow’s radio with Lawo crystal and VisTool | Media Tomorrow | Scoop.it

With the development of its FlexiProd project, Belgium’s RTBF is preparing for the future of radio. Described as, “an evolution toward digital hybrid smart radio,” by RTBF director general Francis Goffin, the project places 25 Lawo crystal mixing consoles at its core.

The scheme involves constructing eight on-air studios and 14 production/editing rooms, and the building of two OB vehicles. It also requires complete re- organisation and updating of the broadcaster’s working process, with studios, OB and staff to be ready by September 2015.

“Flexible production is what FlexiProd stands for,” explains Laurent Finet, RTBF’s director of Radio Production and Digital Innovation. He anticipates eliminating separate presenter, production and technical operation roles: “Ideally, everybody should be able to present a radio program,” he says.

ICFJ Knight roundup: Spotlight on investigative reporting in Africa

ICFJ Knight roundup: Spotlight on investigative reporting in Africa | Media Tomorrow | Scoop.it
Investigative reporting and more from our Knight Fellows in this week’s roundup.

Spotlight on investigative reporting in Africa

The recent work of the African Network of Centers for Investigative Reporting (ANCIR), founded by ICFJ Knight Fellow Justin Arenstein, was presented at the International Journalism Festival in Perugia, Italy.

ANCIR has been integral to exposing the hidden networks of the Italian mafia in Africa. In a joint investigation with the Investigative Reporting Project Italy and CORRECT!V, ANCIR details the Italian mafia’s control of Africa’s diamond empire and the intricate network of proxies used to hide and launder money. The work was picked up by Mail & Guardian, a well-known online news site in Africa.

In other Africa-related news, ICFJ Knight Fellow Friedrich Lindenberg helped ANCIR and a coalition of investigative organizations expose the World Bank’s “broken promise” to “protect the poor.” The International Center for Investigative Journalists, The Huffington Post, El Pais, the Guardian, Fusion, The Investigative Fund, the GroundTruth Project, Brazil’s Agência Pública and Nigeria’s Premium Times all published their investigations, drawing global attention and response from the president Jim Yong Kim at the World Bank Group’s 2015 spring meeting that the Bank would review its resettlement policies.

Strong, independent media critical for good governance | Devex

Strong, independent media critical for good governance | Devex | Media Tomorrow | Scoop.it

Do not envy U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Gayle Smith, who recently took the helm of one of the world’s largest development organizations. Violent extremism is on the rise. The largest number of refugees since World War II are fleeing intractable wars in the Middle East, Africa, Central America and elsewhere. Humanitarian crises caused by droughts and natural disasters are likely to persist. Widespread corruption continues, undermining the legitimacy of governments. Over a billion people still live in extreme poverty.

Emergencies like these, coupled with tight budgets, make it tempting to cut into investments that do not relieve immediate human suffering. [...]


Community media (from radio to locally created news apps), last mile infrastructure to ensure that communities have the means to access information, and well-implemented laws that protect and ensure people’s right to information are all critical. [...]
