First-ever Global Survey of News Tech Reveals Perilous Digital Skills Gap

The State of Technology in Global Newsrooms is the first-ever survey on the adoption of digital technologies in news media worldwide. The International Center for Journalists, working with Georgetown University, conducted the study in 12 languages, and received more than 2,700 responses from journalists and newsroom managers in 130 countries.

As we face a global media landscape rife with uncertainty and excitement, a comprehensive understanding of this new era and what it means for journalists has never been more urgent. Our survey sought to answer a critical question: Are journalists ready for the digital revolution? Despite great strides in leveraging new technologies, we conclude that the answer is no.
