Radio News Conference 2012
14-15 June 2012
For its 2012 edition, to be held at the kind invitation of Czech Radio in the Czech capital Prague, the Radio News Conference addresses the role of public service journalists in today's world of ubiquitous media.
The advent of the real-time internet and citizen reporting brings with it unique challenges, and perhaps even new responsibilities for public service journalists. Focusing on democracy, quality and depth of reporting, the sessions explore what is meant by 'public service values' in the context of radio journalism in 2012.
Please note that the agenda below is currently being regularly updated as speakers are added and sessions finalised.

Session 4: Adding Value: Radio News Online
Our websites can be used to add value to our content in a number of ways. Tools like on-demand listening, segmentation and social media integration already enhance our services. But are we using these portals to their fullest potential, both to serve our existing listeners with innovative ways to present our news, as well as to attract new listeners to our broadcast output ?
