Presented at ONA19
September 11, 2019
More from this event →

Reddit’s 100k+ topic-oriented communities are a tremendously broad and deep resource for anyone sourcing stories, but can be frustratingly labyrinthian for the uninitiated. This session will deliver story-sourcing best-practices, knowledge of site taxonomy and tactical skills to chase leads and spark ideas.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsrooms looking to tap hyper-local, -specific and -engaged networks
  • Anyone interested in sourcing unique, innovative stories cheaply and efficiently
  • Publishers that would like to establish product-forward story sourcing and content discovery
