On 22 May 2024, our digital journalism conference Newsrewired returns to London and we will be exploring many pressing topics facing the news industry: engaging Gen Z in political news, building loyalty through newsletters - and the small matter of practical applications for generative AI in the newsroom.

There's a few tickets left, head over to the Newsrewired website to check out the full agenda and to grab your seat now.

In this week's podcast episode, we look back at our last Newsrewired event in November where there was a similar theme: driving change and being picky over what to pursue. Newsrooms, after all, cannot do it all and they need to pick their battles wisely.

In a world of increasing possibilities and pressures, the central question is this: how can we be selective and effective at innovating? 

How do you get readers to pay for news? Will AI take our jobs? Where are the new business model opportunities? These questions and more were pored over. 

In this special collaborative episode with our friends at Media Voices, we take a look at the key themes across the day, plus some backstage interviews with; independent media consultant Isabelle Roughol, media strategy expert Lucy Kueng, The News Movement managing editor Jonathan Paterson, post-doctoral researcher Dr Bartosz Wilczek and Explainable director Kevin Donnellan.
