The subject will form a key discussion at the Society of Editors’ upcoming March annual event
The high-profile one-day event, which brings together more than 200 leading editors and journalists from all sectors of the UK news media, will take place on 15 March 2023 at the Leonardo Royal Hotel, London City.
Speakers confirmed include Camilla Tominey, associate editor covering politics and the royals at The Telegraph, Roya Nikkhah, royal editor at The Sunday Times, Russell Myers, royal editor at the Daily Mirror and Catherine Mayer, journalist and author of a bestselling biography of the King.
As well as an influential editors’ panel discussing the media landscape, the conference will also include themes on data and demographics, the use of AI, attracting new audiences and adapting content across platforms.
It will also look at the relationship between local democracy, politics and the media, diversity and inclusion, and mental health in the newsroom.
Dawn Alford, executive director of the Society of Editors said: “Following what has been a historic 18 months for the royal family, the society’s annual conference will bring together senior industry figures to discuss the future of royal reporting.
“Has the public’s appetite for news on the royal family changed? How should momentous events be covered moving forward and what should the relationship between the media and the institution look like in the years to come?”
