WAN-IFRA launches coronanewsroom.org, a resource desk for news media professionals.

WAN-IFRA has published a dedicated resource site at coronanewsroom.org to share its members’ experiences, best-practice, crucial resources, and the things we are doing to help.

The impact of the Coronavirus pandemic is reverberating within news organisations, impacting every aspect of publishing: newsroom organisation, distribution, production, planning, coordination and ensuring staff’s safety and well-being.

With each passing day of the Covid-19 crisis, journalism is showing, unequivocally, why it matters. WAN-IFRA is mobilising its staff, members and different communities to exchange their experiences, ideas and support for each other. This resource centre will serve as a destination for you and your teams. It is a developing, evolving platform and we want you to be a part of it.


    Starting March 18, WAN-IFRA launched a series of webinars to address some of the main challenges facing news media in the context of the global Coronavirus outbreak. Drawing on the practical experiences of media from around the world, three upcoming webinars will examine the main areas in which decision-making, leadership and practical action are vital in assuring the safety of the journalists and the newsrooms, and the business continuity of the news organisations.
