The future of local and regional news
Local and regional news has been under pressure for years as audiences shifted their attention to digital and classified and display advertising moved to online specialists. The pandemic is now seriously impacting remaining revenues leading many companies to cut staff, stop printing, or be forced into liquidation. This webinar offers an international perspective on how local and regional news is valued across different countries and what sources of local news people prefer as well as the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on these companies.
