Trigger warning: Are you good enough to become a journalist? - How the future of journalism is shaped by young talents today

Hosted by: DW Global Media Forum

Instead of going to J-school many young talents opt for creating their own channels on social media. Many even give up on traditional journalism altogether. What can established institutions do to still attract the right candidates for journalism? And how can today's training standards and selection practices help to ensure a sustainable future for newsrooms – especially in regional news outlets?  How important are skills in data interpretation, foreign languages or programming literacy?  Host Shabnam Surita discusses changes in the current requirements needed to pursue a career in journalism.
