About mobile newsrooms and online only news sites

Join me for a great event on April 24 - New Journalism / New Media and the impact on PR

As member of the board at 3C - the Corporate Communications Community - I have the opportunity to suggest and organise topical events and this is one I really am looking forward to...

  • A mobile newsroom carrying reporters at high speed on the road and on the web…
  • An online only news-site, launched in just a couple of months and catering to the “Change Generation”…

The job of a reporter has changed dramatically since the arrival of the social web and – by definition – has also an impact on our media relations practice.

Discover these latest developments via two Belgian media projects:

The Mobile Newsroom – A project by Damien Van Achter, TEDx Speaker, ex-Social Media Manager at the RTBF and currently professor of online journalism at IHECS. Damien will give us the latest trends in online newsgathering and explain the concept behind his mobile newsroom project.

Newsmonkey.be : The latest news site in Belgium, focusing 200% on the online community will be discussed by Wouter Verschelden, ex- editor in Chief of De Morgen – and now Publisher at Newsmonkey. He will explain why there is an opportunity in the online media landscape and why they are targeting the “change generation” specifically.

Both speaker and the moderator will then take questions and discuss the impact of these developments on the role of media relations and external communication from a corporate point of view.
