What are the foundations for success for Public Service Media developing new projects and products for digital news? A new report from the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford examines eight new projects and products for digital news launched by Public Service Media (PSM) across six European countries, and establishes several key traits that interviewees suggest are necessary for success.
With input from 36 interviewees; senior editors and managers as well as people involved in the development of each carefully selected project or product, the report finds four foundational factors that appear necessary for project success, along with three additional factors that seem to facilitate it.
