CitiMundo is hosting a six-week course on new media, new technologies, and entrepreneurial innovation at the prestigious New York City Tech Museum. The organizers of the event, which runs from the home of CitiMundo Events, have selected a panel of experts from the worlds of television, the web, and theater to speak about their experience in building, operating, and Managing Content Agencies. Panelists include: Jon Kroll, VP of Digital Content, Universal Pictures; ChrisBateman, VP of Development & Creative Services at Twentieth Century Fox; Pam Bees, Executive Vice President of News Corp; and Sara Swartz, Executive Vice President of KETA, a company that creates interactive, social media websites for nonprofits.
The news tech keynote participants will take the stage together at the Intercontinental New York Hilton to discuss how they built their own Content Agencies, and how they succeeded in their field. This is a unique combination of a personal story and a sharing of technical know-how about how they built their agencies. Each panelist will have the opportunity to make a few announcements. A sneak peak of the program will be available prior to the program date.
In the fall of 2021, CitiMundo was responsible for launching an exciting and innovative news operations initiative. They developed an original and innovative concept that combines traditional news operations with cutting-edge new technologies and social media. In the news operations segment of the event, journalists and correspondents are invited to present an in-depth overview of their stories based on their area of focus. They then have the chance to share their stories through social media sites including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, and have them posted on the CITI website.
CITI also developed an online application that allows audience members to subscribe to a feed of local news and events that they can then listen to online at their convenience. News readers can select their subscriptions to favorite radio stations, which are constantly updated by the network. This application will provide audiences with information about local and national news, weather, business, education, health, and sports that will appeal to a wide variety of audiences.
For news organizations that rely on a dedicated workforce of reporters and editors, incorporating cutting-edge new technologies can help you attract and retain talented newsroom personnel. Aided by the latest in digital technology, digital reporters will be able to submit articles and photos with the click of a button. The integration of cutting-edge equipment will allow the reporters to better perform their jobs, resulting in higher productivity and a more quality work product for your organization. Newsroom employees will enjoy the added benefit of being able to use a smartphone or tablet to access the newsroom from any location. This type of convenience can help news organizations reduce their expenses and maximize their workspace.
As technology evolves, it is critical that news organizations continue to use cutting edge new technologies to help increase their profitability and influence their audiences. By introducing these new technologies to their workforce, news organizations can attract and retain some of the best newsroom personnel available. As news organizations adapt to the new technologies and devices being introduced, the quality of their content will dramatically improve. When it comes to quality, News Tech is a force to be reckoned with.
