FT’s integrated newsroom is in operation

Amidst all the kerfuffle about the Telegraph’s new newsroom, I missed a report that the Financial Times’s new integrated multimedia newsroom is up and running.

If Google News provides an accurate picture, only the Sunday Herald in Glasgow has reported that it has started operation, although the Guardian did a prelim piece ten days earlier.

The integration of online and print was announced back in the summer and 50 editorial jobs, mostly in production, have been lost. At the FT that represented 10% of the 500 editorial posts.

Since October 1, it has been running. The Sunday Herald was told by executive editor Hugh Carnegy there would be single commissioning for stories to appear on both platforms with the 7.30am ft.com conference becoming the early conference for the whole paper.

Those decisions are feeding into the main editorial conference at 10.30am. This, the Herald reports, will “end several confusing anomalies that have grown up around having two systems at the paper. Reporting teams will no longer have to juggle separate commissions from print and web editors, and there will not be separate teams working on the same story.”
