The digital newsrooms at TV and radio stations, newspapers and magazines often operate as independent divisions with invisible strings to their legacy broadcast or print counterparts. So, can they ‘fit in’ without conforming to corporate culture? How can they maintain their own cultural digital identity? These panelists work at different kinds of publishers but all in the digital newsroom. Learn from them about how they’ve created a culture all their own and are still able to work well with their legacy peers.
