Well into President Trump's first year, we go back to New York City and Washington D.C. to see how newsrooms have adapted. As in 2016, we will focus very much on Social. In newsgathering - how are they filtering the signals from the noise? And in reaching audience, how you reach out to new audiences while at the same time nurturing loyal readers on your own platforms


23-27 October 2017
New York City & Washington D.C.



During our Super Social Newsroom Study Tour in 2017 we visited Washington Post, USA Today, Politico, Philadelphia Media Network, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, TheStreet, Inc., CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, The Associated Press, Quartz and Chartbeat.

Unparalleled Access to Top Newsrooms

Our Study Tours offer you coveted behind-the-scenes access to newsrooms, and the key people leading them, so that you can ask the critical questions and learn from their successes.

Peer-to-Peer Networking

WAN-IFRA Study Tours offer you valuable networking with your fellow Study Tour participants - giving you a platform to exchange best practices in newsrooms with global contacts. As stated by a 2017 Study Tour participant, "To me, it meant a lot having the conversations with the other participants about the impressions we took at the companies. I learned a lot - and it was a very good choice - with deep insights of the different companies. Didn't miss a thing." Martin Wilhelm, CEO, Heidenheimer Zeitung (Germany)
