Lost in Transition; Managing convergence at regional newspapers

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

We investigate to what extent and how Dutch regional newspapers implement and manage convergence strategies. Thirty managers, editors and market experts at all six regional newspaper publishers were interviewed. At least 27 factors were mentioned as having a critical impact on the potential success of the transition towards convergence. However, while most regional dailies experiment with convergence, they hardly invest in reskilling journalists or in new content concepts. We conclude that the management of regional newspapers in the Netherlands tends to operate safely. A lack of successful examples and good ideas seem to play a role in the hesitation to invest.
