Mobile Journalism: The Gannett Experiment

The Gannett chain of newspapers in the U.S. began an experiment with some of its newspapers equipping journalists with mobile equipment and shifting their emphasis to hyperlocal reporting. The premise:

We must deliver news and information on whatever platform our customers wish — print, Internet, telephone, Blackberry, TV, radio — and deliver it when they want it.

Here’s an initial report from 2006, six weeks in.

And a piece on lessons learned, from September 2007, and a speech which includes details of the shift.

A discussion about the experiment, and some links to stories.
