The decline in TV viewing is now being compared to the fall in print readership seen by newspapers a decade ago. The means to remedy this is simple: experiment or die. That's the choice faced by traditional TV news in the age where we can get news on any mobile device, anytime, anywhere.
Younger audiences are tuning out of traditional formats and into digital representations of news, with television audiences broadcast to decline by a quarter within the next decade.
In response, Snapchat, Periscope, Instagram and Facebook Live have become regular tools of what was once a far more traditional trade.
The question remains: Although TV news remains well and alive today, how long can this new experimentation continue, and where do these outlets and channels go from here?
We take a look at how broadcasters are repackaging their output to avoid becoming technologically outpaced, journalistically outmoded and economically outdated.
Talking us through the story are: Sahil Patel, video reporter at Digiday; Richard Sambrook, director at Cardiff School of Journalism; Ritu Kapur, cofounder of Quintillion Media; and Anders Hosfeth, strategic analyst at the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, NRK.
