What are you reading to stay up on journalism/digital trends?

March 11, 2014

I'm always interested in hearing what people are reading to stay up on what's happening in our industry.

 

It's a question I always ask in job interviews. It's critical you know as much about the news industry as the news itself.

 

Here are some of the people and organizations I follow to stay in touch:

 

Neiman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard: Neiman does amazing research and innovation in journalism.  Neiman also has a

n excellent app.  I find Ken Doctor's "newsonomics" series extremely insightful.  If more journalists had a better sense of business, we'd be a lot better off.

 

 

 

The Poynter Institute: There's so much good that comes out of The Poynter Institute; I recommend checking their website on a regular basis. My two favorite writers are Jill Geisler's management blog and Craig Silverman's error blog.   We can never learn enough about being a good manager and maintaining quality.

 

The American Press Institute, despite struggling in the past few years, publishes an excellent "Need to know" eblast.. It does a good job of taking the news a step further and highlighting what you may not know.

 

The Buttry Diary: Steve Buttry, transformation editor for Digital First Media, writes an excellent blog that covers everything from the latest trends, to industry happenings, digital skills and leadership skills.

 

Harvard Business Review: Journalists don't have all the answers so it's a good idea to look at experts outside our industry. I read a lot of their blogs to keep up on the latest business and management trends.
