BBC opens integrated newsroom

Once again, newsrooms overseas are leading the way in reinventing themselves. The BBC unveiled its newly integrated newsroom last week. I’m still trying to hunt down pictures or video from the new diggs. But for now, the best story out there (sent in via Christian Oliver) can be found here in the Press Gazette:

BBC Opens Multi-Platform Newsroom

Of interest:

“The first stage of the BBC’s newsroom integration project was completed on Monday as journalists from the corporation’s rolling television news service began working in a common newsroom with their colleagues from radio and television news bulletins.
BBC head of newsroom Peter Horrocks described this week’s changes as the first phase of the BBC’s effort to integrate its news operation across media.”

And:

“In the short term, he said, most journalists working in the BBC newsroom will continue to work primarily in the media that they have traditionally worked. Over time, producers will increasingly work across television, radio and online as staff are put through a training programme.”
