About a week ago, Nieman Lab starting releasing its annual “Predictions for Journalism” for 2019
. The lab reaches out to some of the best and the brightest in the industry, sharing what they think journalism will look like in the coming year, with predictions ranging from audience, technology, platforms, demographics and more.
It’s probably my favorite time of the year. I mean, who wouldn’t want to read what their industry could look like over the next few months?
This year, however, I started to think about last year’s list. Did any of the predictions that were made for 2018 come true?
I re-visited the list this weekend to pull out some of last year’s predictions that actually happened in 2018.
