The Faculty of Journalism and Communication Sciences of the University of Bucharest is, for the sixth consecutive year, the partner of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University, in the largest multi-annual study in the world on information consumption and opinion of digital audiences (for both traditional and online media).
“This year, we want to talk about the good newsrooms, which work every day to inform us, regardless of the obstacles of these recent years. Therefore, we invited to a honest discussion on the relationship between the press and its audience six journalists from editorial offices that constantly appear in the DNR charts: Cosmin Savu (ProTV), Ionela Gavriliu (Antena 1), Florin Negruțiu (Digi 24), Clarice Dinu (HotNews), Ramona Avramescu (TVR) and Dan Vasiliu (Radio Romania)”, note the organizers.
This year, DNR means:
📌 a study of 46 media markets, including Romania, with over 93,000 respondents
📌 a second five-country audience study conducted after the start of the war in Ukraine
📌 a discussion based on solid research data on global trends in digital audiences
📌 an analysis of the interest for various news topics
📌 a discussion on the reasons for avoiding the informative content, in the world and in Romania
Digital News Report
The study is coordinated by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University and compares media consumption in several countries, from Japan to the United States. This year, the data collected in 46 countries, including Romania, in January-February 2022, will be available on the DNR website on June 15, from 0.01 (London time).
