Highs & Lows Of Journalism Innovation In ’15

Much has happened to advance storytelling. One of the most important, in my view, is that we don’t hear the phrase “digital first” as often as we did in 2014. It is more about “the story first” now. Concern about platforms has become secondary. The story as protagonist is where it’s at and should continue to be. Those who populate newsrooms globally are getting the idea: we are in the storytelling business and we now have more platforms than ever to tell those stories. Amen to that, but I hope 2016 will be a year to concentrate on the need for innovative and creative storytelling techniques.
