Out of Office
Out of Office with Alan Hunter
Welcome to Episode 11 of the Out of Office podcast, which I recorded in the summer of 2021 with Alan Hunter, former head of digital for The Times and The Sunday Times, where we walked around Alexandra Palace and talked about Alan’s days at News UK - his shift from journalist to digital guru, how print and digital have converged over recent years and how to build a world class digital news media team.
We also had a quick chat about something that comes up time and time again - which is the better model for digital news media, periodical editions or continuous feeds - or possibly even something in-between? Listen in and you’ll get Alan’s views and some insight into how they’ve approached this at the Times.
Thanks again to Alan for being so generous with his time, and as always, if you have any suggestions on who you’d like me to walk and talk with, or if you have any feedback at all - just give me a shout - I’d love to hear from you…
