Evolving forms and the future of live coverage
Breaking news formats have evolved and so have reader devices and preferences. Both The New York Times and The Guardian — through its Mobile Innovation Lab — have broadened their breaking news formats and experimented with new forms. In this session, we’ll review our current story forms and discuss the pros and cons, then share lessons from early experiments from the future of live coverage.
