CNN is launching a new Digital Leadership programme that will provide journalists and executives from CNN’s partners worldwide the very latest technological innovations in newsgathering and production.

The inaugural Digital Leadership intake, starting on July 7, will see participants from countries including the Philippines, Taiwan, Vietnam, Brazil, Israel, Bahrain, France and Germany, immersed in CNN’s digital experience and expertise so they can empower their organisations with more effective multi-platform digital content and strategies. The ten-day programme – taking place at CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta and then in the very heart of digital innovation in Silicon Valley – will embed executive-level newsroom and digital leaders into CNN’s digital multi-platform operations and the cutting-edge technology companies of digital media.

Intensive training from top executives at CNN as well as collaborative sessions with top technology firms across publishing and social media span:

  • Strategies in technology, mobile devices and digital content management
  • Workshops and interactive seminars on newsgathering, content curation, acquisition, publishing, distribution, research and analytics, breaking news, monetisation and the relationship between broadcast and digital divisions

Participants will also attend an innovation session at Turner Media Camp, Turner Broadcasting’s own in house start-up incubator.
