John Paton – Reinventing Journalism for a Digital Age


Of the many voices contributing to the reinvention of news media, John Paton looms large. He is known for both spearheading the Ben Franklin project at the Journal Register, and for his Digital First (Print Last) journalism mantra.

Paton has a couple interesting posts on his blog from the past month – one a video summararizing a year of change at the Journal Register, and the other a summary of a presentation he gave at INMA in December. The brief Year of Change video is presented below:

Paton’s IMNA presentation from December 2010 can be found at the following link: Channeling Change. I haven’t had a chance to review the presentation, but there should be many important insights for the year ahead around video journalism, new device proliferation, community engagement, new News business models, the importance of designing digital-first editorial workflows, and leveraging new tools and technology.
