This is a series on Better News to a) showcase innovative/experimental ideas that emerge from the Knight-Lenfest Newsroom Initiative and b) share replicable tactics that benefit the news industry as a whole. This “win” comes from John…
Mr AndersonMT @localmediarocks 42% of digital subscribers were not visiting the site at least once/month - typical percentage for every newsroom we work with. Love how @azcentral developed a plan- 'killing zombies' -since the churn rate is so high for this group.
Twitter announced a pair of big upcoming features today: the ability for users to charge their followers for access to additional content, and the ability to create and join groups based around specific interests. They're two of the more…
Mr AndersonMT @MichelleManafy Twitter announces paid Super Follows, which will allow Twitter users to charge followers and give them access to extra content -could be bonus tweets, access to a community group, newsletter subs, or a badge showing support. via @Verge
Not too long ago, Business Insider came across as the less trendy younger brother of Buzzfeed, Vice and HuffPost. It had no billion-dollar-plus valuation, its growth appeared steady in comparison, and it didn't have quite the same street cred.
Mr AndersonRT @Mediavoicespod 'Buzzfeed was modelling itself as an entertainment company with a news division. Whereas we want to be a journalism company. We're not trying to build the Disney piece.'

S. Mitra Kalita saw the news first on Facebook. Juan Vicente Valerio, a bike mechanic from her Jackson Heights, Queens, neighborhood, had died from the coronavirus. Valerio had tended to Kalita's husband's bike for years. He was a neighbor. And he…
Mr AndersonMT @kristenhare: @mitrakalita said 2 things to me this week for my newsletter that made my brain: 1. She doesn't think in terms of local/national. Her work with @epicenter_nyc and @url_media are rooted in community and community isn't just where you live.
Marketers for an Open Web legal adviser Tim Cowen condemns ‘sweetheart' deal between News Corp and Google. While Facebook was blocking news in Australia, Google did a global deal with News Corp, thereby saving journalism worldwide, right?
Mr AndersonRT @pressgazette Google 'sweetheart' deal with News Corp helps both avoid regulation, say Marketers for an Open Web. 'How will it now hold Google to account?'
Mr AndersonMT @wnip Audio chatrooms like Clubhouse have become the hot new media by tapping into age-old appeal of the human voice. Humans have felt the need to connect & tell stories since time immemorial. This is audio's secret sauce. @damianradcliffe #publishing
