What does the future newsroom look like?

Today on Media Files, a podcast about the major themes and issues in the media, we’re looking at the future newsroom.

We often hear about the doom and gloom of established media companies as they shed staff and revenues, but is there hope for journalism and a new style of digital newsroom? We ask of the man with an ambitious mission to launch 100 media start-ups in three years: what does the future newsroom look like?

Our guest is co-founder and CEO of Splice Media, Alan Soon. Based in Singapore, Alan is a former journalist and producer at Yahoo, CNBC, Bloomberg and Kyodo News, and is promising a million dollars to give to start-ups to transform media in Asia.

We talked about:

• Challenges and opportunities for start-ups

• His pledge to launch 100 digital media start-ups in Asia over three years with a $1 million fund – and where the money comes from

• Why he thinks Asia lacks a robust ecosystem around media start-ups.

• How to build communities around membership and make a media start-up financially sustainable.

• Media trends and innovations that he expects we will see more of in the future.

• How limiting the different regulatory environments and political norms such as regard for freedom of expression may be in parts of Asia.

And much, much more.
