Reduce the Time You Spend on Print to Focus on Digital

Presented by Tore Nilssen, Avdelingsleder desk, Aftenposten, and Thomas Berndt, managing online editor and chief news editor, Politiken

About this Webinar

How newsrooms can reduce the amount of time spent on producing a newspaper to focus more on digital is the focus of this INMA Newsroom Transformation Webinar.

We’ll welcome guest speakers Tore Nilssen, Avdelingsleder desk at Aftenposten, and Thomas Berndt, managing online editor and chief news editor at Politiken.

Becoming a digital-first newsroom is more than simply publishing content online before it goes in your newspaper. But one of the conundrums publishers face is how to reduce the amount of time needed to produce the newspaper – from planning to designing the pages. Many organisations still have significant resources invested in newspaper production, which can hamper their ability to invest more on the digital side of the business.

But there are ways to streamline print production and unlock capacity to dedicate elsewhere in your newsroom.

At Aftenposten, Norway's largest printed newspaper by circulation, print production was automated. The Schibsted-owned newspaper now has far fewer resources assigned to print production. Tore will discuss how they moved to print automation and what other publishers can learn from it.

Meanwhile, Politiken’s newsroom significantly reduced its print production time and staffing by adopting a model that requires specific story lengths at the outset of the process. Thomas will join us to explain how Politiken has retained its unique design while saving significant time in the process.

The Webinar will be moderated by Amalie Nash, INMA’s Newsroom Transformation Initiative Lead.
