"Publishers and platforms: strategies for 2019" - panel at #ijf19 w/ @janinegibson @blathnaidhealy @rkapkap @mariaramirezNY to talk about what they are doing to work platforms to their own advantage, what we've learned from past, & where we go next. Bit of context in thread below
Different publishers have different needs, and different platforms offer different threats+opportunties-below % of respondents in @nicnewman Journalism Trends and Predictions 2019 who said each platform would be "very"/"extremely" important going forward reutersinstitute.politics.ox.ac.uk/our-research/j…
Also clear publishers and platforms often tightly intertwined, not just through flow of traffic, but also technically - below % major EU news sites across 7 countries who had third-party content from different platforms as of July (work led by @tim_libert) reutersinstitute.politics.ox.ac.uk/our-research/c…

What’s next for the business of news? 

Journalists need to be part of developing future funding models to be independent and able to report (and “you’ll miss us when we are gone” is not a business model).

Background on my #IJF19 panel w/ @kapur_ritu @RosanSmits @tomstandage 1/8
Historically, the business of news was based on bundled products, low consumer choice and high publisher market power over advertisers.

But this model has been in long-term structural decline for decades, a decline accelerated by move to digital and dominance of platforms. 2/8
Today, we have unbundling, high consumer choice, and low publisher market power over advertisers-resulting in lower revenues, slimmer margins, and job cuts.

Basic challenge is similar for digital-born and legacy publishers: how to create+capture value in competitive market? 3/8

"Why podcasts and what for?" asks @rkapkap from @ft at this audio panel with @nicnewman @MukulDevichand and @OlleZ.

"Over half of podcast consumption comes from under 35s. The reasons are authenticity and convenience," says @nicnewman #Ijf19
"Podcasts are not radio in the same way as online video is not TV. Audio is a much more personal, more informal livelier experience than reading. What's most exciting is the type of audience you can reach: basically younger people," says @MukulDevichand from @bbc
"What audio is going to be in a smart speaker is not clear yet. At @BBCNews we are testing different kinds of interactions. For example, a product for children and another one on the Indian elections," says @MukulDevichand #Ijf19

Glad to be in Rome for the Italian launch of mine & @gatnash's book. This city brings back a flood of memories. I'm exhausted but upbeat - great energy in the air.
TIL that the Italian word for "floor" or "deck" is piano. I'm on the second piano at this hotel.
Thanks for the hospitality, Rome! Off to Perugia for #ijf19
