You only have to look as far as hurricane Bawbag and recent developments between Diageo and Brewdog to see how social media is influencing editorial decisions at news desks across the country.

Who better to a look at this topic than Iain Pope the Digital Intake Editor at STV. An advocate of social media in the news gathering process, Iain is also part of the team behind the recent innovations at STV using online and hyper-local journalism.

  • The changing relationship between consumers and producers of news
  • New challenges facing online journalists and news producers
