The rise of social and mobile represents a power shift to audience and platforms

The DPP has today published its What’s The News? summary report. What’s The News? brings together senior editorial leaders from major news organisations to explore the major trends in news consumptions, and what they mean for news operations.

“There are currently huge innovations in the way people are consuming news” says DPP Editorial Director Edward Qualtrough, the report author. “This introduces huge opportunities for news and content organisations to capitalise on.”

The report sets the scene for the DPP’s Tomorrow’s News series which will also examine the business and technology models of future newsrooms. The series is enabled by companies across the DPP membership: Lead Sponsor Qvest, Expert Sponsors Avid, Dalet, and Wolftech Broadcast Solutions, and Contributing Sponsor Associated Press.

What’s The News? found that the current trends in mobile and social media - and the shifts towards these platforms - has dramatically changed how news is being consumed. In these formats news companies no longer own the means of distribution, while the power of the audience also has increased significantly.

These forces have in turn fundamentally changed how news companies are telling stories. And it’s more than simply putting TV on the internet.

“Social media platforms such as TikTok are becoming increasingly relevant - including in reporting. More and more people prefer a creative TikTok video than a classic TV news” says Thomas Müller, CTO at Qvest. “The opportunities and potential of a modern tech stack enables established media companies to gain more flexibility and attractiveness – while ensuring their highest standards of journalistic work in all media types.”

The full report is available to download by DPP members here. The video on demand can be viewed by anyone here.

For the next stage of Tomorrow’s News, two reports will be released in late August; Making The News and The News Business.
