Bettina Figl is a reporter at Austrian newspaper Wiener Zeitung. But she is also a research fellow at The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford. There she published a paper about data journalism and small newsrooms.
She talks with us at Check Your Facts podcast about how she managed to find her way into Oxford University and what she found out researching several newsrooms. This may help you implementing or strengthen data-driven modules in your newsroom as well.
When Bettina is not writing papers on digital journalism or working for Wiener Zeitung she is organising an event in Vienna called „Aufmacher“ („lead story“). She and her colleagues invite journalists to talk — very casually — about their job. The best thing: it is free and open for everyone.
As usual, we also talk about the media landscape and current issues in the guest’s home country which is Austria this time.
Again, you will find many insights on our guest and her work — and even more.
