For our 10th annual, we wanted to do something different for our lunchtime keynote — and we delivered.
Ten longtime Klein News Innovation Camp attendees each gave one big, bold prediction for the next decade in journalism.
In the next 10 years….
- We’ll see journalism produced by organizations with entirely different business models: Christopher Wink, Technical.ly
- We’ll witness the death of Twitter: Jess Estepa, USA Today
- Photographers will be more valuable than writers for reader engagement: Dave Cole, Wall Street Journal
- We’ve witnessed the last generation of news consumers who will expect objectivity. Emily McManus, TED
- News organizations will grapple with the coordinated harassment of their teams or the most challenging work will go undone: Chris Grant, Vox Media
- Place will matter more, not less, for news organizations in a web-connected world: Andre Natta, Lenfest Institute
