Some highlights from the next edition of Press Gazette, which will be in the post to subscribers on 5 January:
Your indispensable guide to 2010: Leading journalists pick their big stories and issues of the year ahead, an in-depth guide to the big events with full press contact details.
Tony Gallagher: The new Daily Telegraph editor is keeping his head down so far, and is declining to do any interviews. But Ciar Byrne has been asking around and writes a profile of the new editor of Britain’s market leading quality daily. She finds he is “nice as pie” to reporters who bring home the goods and is more likely to dish out bollockings via email these days.
Steve Dyson. The former Birmingham Mail editor gives a candid interview explaining the particular problems a daily newspaper has in Birmingham and sounds alarm bells for a regional newspaper industry which has rushed headlong into web-first publishing: “We are just beginning to get to grips with the fact that second rise of the internet has not worked for the regional press.”
We investigate the rise of ‘i’, a Portuguese newspaper which appears to be showing that print innovation can win over younger readers.
And Independent on Sunday editor John Mullin explains just how the hell he gets out a national newspaper with just five reporters – paying tribute to a 30-strong editorial team which he says works harder than anyone else on Fleet Street. He also reveals why his title is on track to enter profit next year.
There is expert analysis and comment from Lori Miles on magazines, Alex Thomson on broadcasting, Peter Kirwan on media business and the inimitable Grey Cardigan.
And this month’s Knowledge section includes: exclusive print-only columns from Peter Sands on editorial management and Martin Tripp on careers; an in-depth briefing on freelance motoring journalism; a guide to the best smartphones for journalists from the editor of Stuff magazine Will Findlater; books; training with Kevin Marsh and journalism technology tips from Reuters technology correspondent Tarmo Virki.
There’s also a free 20-page guide to photojournalism.
