Sky News Merge TV and Digital

In the week the BBC publishes it’s ‘Future of News’ report, Sky News has announced that it will be merging the TV and digital staff in it’s news room. The Guardian reports that the move is aimed at ‘breaking down the barriers between digital and television and putting more emphasis on online’, although it will inevitably lead also to cost cutting and redundancies. Lucia Moses collects some interesting points of view on the cases for and against integrated newsrooms in her Digiday blog as she interviews editor-in-chiefs of the Daily News and the Daily Mail.
