TV news organizations are under tremendous pressure to produce more content for their expanded hours of linear news and their digital and streaming channels. Leading executives tasked with doing so share how they’re managing it while avoiding burnout and keeping the budget under control in a panel, Creating More Content for a Multimedia Audience, at TVNewsCheck’s NewsTECHForum on Dec. 13 at the New York Hilton.

Panelists are Lisa Allen, VP and GM of Washington operations at Gray Television; Ernie Ensign, senior director of news technology at Sinclair Broadcast Group; Vanessa Strouse-Kenney, VP and head of digital, Scripps News and Court TV, The E.W. Scripps Co.; Emily Stone, VP digital content operations, Fox Television Stations; and Stephane Guez, co-founder and CTO of Dalet. TVNewsCheck Editor Michael Depp will moderate the 1 p.m. discussion.

“TV newsrooms need to make more content than ever to push across more platforms with limited to no additional staff to do it,” Depp said. “To make it work, they’re turning to hubbing, news sharing and collaboration and tools like AI, the cloud and emerging video acquisition strategies. Lisa, Ernie, Vanessa, Emily and Stephane will present each of their own approaches to making more news and the tools and technologies they rely on to make it possible.”

NewsTECHForum’s theme for 2022 is Reimagining the News and How It’s Made, and panels also include Blowing Up the TV Newscast in Order To Save It; Building Tomorrow’s News Studio & Workflows; Reinventing News Presentation & Presenters in a Multimedia Ecosystem; Field and Remote Production’s Multiplying Options and the Quest for More Stories; and New Frontiers in News Production.
