News’ Digital And Streaming Storytelling Evolution At NewsTECHForum
Digital innovators — editors, producers and executives — at CNN, BBC, ABC Owned Television Stations, Gray Television and The Weather Company will frame up how the pandemic’s remote production shift and rapidly evolving technological innovations will shape their approaches to news storytelling in 2021 in a panel at TVNewsCheck’s NewsTECHForum in December, presented virtually this year.
Joe Fiveash, VP of strategy and media solutions, The Weather Company; Glen Hale, VP, digital content and audience development, Gray Television; John Kelly, director of data journalism, ABC Owned Television Stations; Robert McKenzie, editor, BBC News Labs; and Ameya Pendse, supervising producer, CNN, will join TVNewsCheck Editor Michael Depp for a panel, How Will Digital and Streaming Storytelling Evolve in 2021? on Dec. 16 at 2 p.m. ET.
“News stories and how they’re digitally delivered will continue to see dramatic leaps forward in 2021, from a proliferation of new streaming content to greater advances in personalization and versioning for audiences,” Depp says. “Joe, Glen, John, Robert and Ameya represent a broad spectrum of experimentation across digital platforms and will share their organizations’ priority projects for next year.”
NewsTECHForum will also feature sessions on Novel Approaches to News Storytelling Under Stress; Pivoting the Newsroom to Crisis; Advances in IP and Cloud Workflows; Remote Production: From Exception to Option; Standing Out on Social in a Historic Year and News 2022: The Reshaping of Programming, Technology and Audience.
Attendees will participate in the live, daily, two-and-a-half-hour streamed sessions on Zoom Webinar, where they can pose questions to speakers, participate in live audience polling and wrap up the day with half-hour, open-mic Roundtables on key issues.
