Medienquartett: Welche Art von JournalistInnen brauchen wir?

Prof. Dr. Wiebke Loosen is a guest in the upcoming Medienquartett of Deutschlandfunk. Together with the other guests, she will discuss the current demands on journalists in the course of digitisation. The live broadcast will begin at 7:15 pm.
Journalists today are no longer the sole guardians and producers of information. Anyone can now become a publicist via the Internet. The digital oversupply of content corresponds to a growing loss of trust in the "traditional" media - and this in a world that seems to be becoming more and more complicated.
What skills and life experience do journalists need in this phase of upheaval? Is the next generation of journalists sufficiently prepared for the new technical and content-related challenges? Do we need more diversity in the media and other forms of education?

Prof. Dr. Christian Floto discusses these questions with the guests:
  • Henriette Löwisch, Director of the German School of Journalism Munich
  • Dr. Wiebke Loosen, Journalism Researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Media Research | Hans-Bredow-Institut (HBI) and Professor at the Department of Journalism and Communication Science at Universität Hamburg
  • Frank A. Meyer, Swiss Publicist
  • Michael Obert, Freelance Journalist and Author, Founder of the Reporter Academy Berlin
Live on Deutschlandfunk, 22 February 2019, 7:15 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
