Press Gazette - Journalism Weekly will return on 11 Jan as PG embraces digital future in 2013

 

Our weekly digital Press Gazette - Journalism Weekly will return after a two-week Christmas break on Friday, January 11, as Press Gazette embraces a digital future in 2013.

Despite a strong reception for the first edition of Press Gazette - Journalism Quarterly - we have taken the decision to focus our efforts on digital publishing and a string of new events. So watch out for more details in the coming weeks about News on the Move - 2 (the UK's only journalism conference focusing on iPads and mobile), as well as new events focusing on media law and digital publishing. Subscribers should have been contacted by Customers Services by now, but for information about refunds call 0845 0739 607.

In common with other B2B titles in particular, we have increasingly found in recent years that readers want to access Press Gazette's news and analysis digitally. And more than ever before are doing so, with www.pressgazette.co.uk now attracting 150,000-plus unique users a month and 35,000 individuals following us on Twitter. While the production of a quarterly journal made great sense journalistically, the commercial case did not pan out as well as we had hoped. And with the Press Gazette editorial team now producing a weekly digital magazine, daily newsletter, rolling news website and iPhone/tablet app - we now plan to focus editorial resources on developing these growing outlets.

Highlights of our first weekly digital magazine of the new year include: an in-depth interview with City AM editor Allister Heath, Mick Hume and Kevin Marsh on life after Leveson, how to get a job at the BBC and British Journalism Awards photojournalist of the year Matt Cardy on the secrets of his success.

Press Gazete - Journalism Weekly, is specially designed to be read on iPads and other tablet devices - but it also works well on desk-top computers and smartphones with reasonably large screens.
