There is a lot of chatter about how to support independent news, from charitable status in the UK to news deals with tech platforms. But are those really going to provide long-term sustainability?

Another promising space is news deals with AI companies and publishers, which would provide a new revenue line for newsrooms, remove copyright concerns and improve AI training models.

Kirkconnell-Kawana warns that, much like all of the proposals to support for news, these avenues need to be carefully considered before chasing the money. Tune in to find out more.
