'All journalism will soon be mobile' says senior Trinity Mirror editor

"All journalism is going to be mobile within a very short space of time," forecast Alison Gow, digital innovation editor, Trinity Mirror, speaking at the NCTJ Journalism Skills conference in Sheffield.

 

She said some journalists still believe audiences will view stories "on this beautiful monitor at leisure, when actually most people view things on a tiny screen and consume their information that way”.

 

And understanding how to present a news story or a longform piece in a way that works for mobile readers is an important skill for young journalists to learn.

 

“The ability to understand social is actually a real skill and it takes time to acquire

Alison Gow, Trinity Mirror

Alongside creating mobile stories, journalists should also be able to understand coding to have an edge in the newsroom, she added.

 

Gow said Trinity Mirror offers basic coding training to its journalists, because it's important for reporters to understand HTML and CSS.

 

Journalists at the media organisation may not code much as part of their day to day work, she said, as there are specialised product teams available.

 

However, "understanding [coding] means they have a better ability to ask for what they want created," she explained.

 

She also highlighted data journalism and an engaging social media presence as two skills that make young journalists stand out in the newsroom nowadays.

 

She said social media skills may even outweigh a pass on a media law exam as "we can put [journalists] through law but the ability to understand social is actually a real skill and it takes time to acquire".

 

Trinity Mirror has also created specialised roles for "social media writers" who stay connected to its communities on social networks.

 

“Everybody works for our digital products and there is a small team of experts who are taking the best of the day's news and looking at the agenda around that, and putting it into the print product

Alison Gow, Trinity Mirror

They work different shifts from other journalists in the newsroom, as the job of a social media writer entails being in tune with the conversations happening in the evening, when people are more likely to be online, she said.

 

"They are a part of [the conversation] and they are writing stories that are emerging out of it, [which are then] going on the site."

 

She also said the media organisation has split its regional newsrooms into two "systems": a live system, and an agenda system.

 

The live system includes journalists working specifically on live content for digital audiences and social media communities.

 

The "agenda writers" are "taking a longer view of what is happening" and looking at people's reactions to stories.

 

Trinity Mirror has been working with a newsroom 3.1 strategy in its regional newspapers, turning the "old system" of working towards a print product on its head.

 

"[Now] everybody works for our digital products and there is a small team of experts who are taking the best of the day's news and looking at the agenda around that, and putting it into the print product," she said.

I personally don't agree with this. The CMA code of ethics for pr are thorough enough. They demonstrate honesty, accuracy and integrity and much other things, all of which relate to situations your most likely to be bound in as a pr practitioner. There is a significant difference between journalism and PR, and personally, our code of ethics are just right and cover enough.

Professional journalism is augmented by untold numbers of citizen journalists who now break news, add context and report through social platforms. To have our free speech standards, our reporting tools and publishing rules set by unaccountable software companies is a defining issue not just for journalism but the whole of society.

I am not going to argue that this is a reversible trend. It isn't. But I am going to argue that journalism has an important role in building and deploying new technologies, shaping non­commercial parts of a new public sphere and holding to account these new extensive systems of power.

A concise discussion by Sarah Skerik that lays out the key differences between the roles played by #BrandJournalism and #ContentMarketing in the conversion process. Very useful and insightful.

Eric Webb | Marketing Executives Network Group's comment, November 26, 2014 8:07 AM
I'm not sure the concept of Brand Journalism is anything new. It's public relations as it has always been. I do believe that PR tends to stay at the top of the funnel and struggles to remain relevant at a time when executives what ROI. Content marketing isn't hard to measure as it takes place from top to bottom of the funnel and when coupled with marketing automation and other tools that measure engagement is easily measured. Brand Journalism / PR is hard to measure because it remains at the top of the funnel. And the coffee mug story could just as easily be a content marketing piece that's part of a broader content marketing effort to sell more mugs. Ultimately content marketing does what PR does but continues to nurture the interest of the audience versus leaving it at one story or a series of stories that never go any deeper and a broad story.
