How to tell the news without being boring? Do journalists have to act as comedians in order to be heard by younger audiences? What about their credibility?

CIRCOM will attempt to answer theses questions with the help of two award winner experts in the field:

  • Vilde Bratland Erikstad, NRK (Norway), winner of Grand Prix CIRCOM 2018 with her programme "Stortvildet"
  • Jonathan Gibson, BBC (UK), commended in the category "Most Original", Prix CIRCOM 2018 with his programme "Craigslist crimes".

Both are successful journalists who achieved the difficult task to keep the audiences' interest in topics like politics or current affairs by way of creating innovative formats.
They will showcase their work and share their approach. 

The various measures taken to limit the spread of coronavirus forces CIRCOM to change its plans for the workshop “The rise of infotainment” originaly scheduled to take place in Paris on the 27th of March 2020 - workshop is now planned for March 2021, with exact date TBA.
