Topic: ReInventing News for Young India
Date: Thursday, 6th August 2020, 3PM (IST) / 5:30PM (GMT+8)
The rules of news consumption are not the same. Driving the online appetite for news are India’s millennials -a mobile-savvy, young audience that are more serious than ever about disinformation, fake news and propaganda. As part of the Promax Asia Creative Playbook –– we welcome Faye D’Souza, independent journalist and Ritu Kapur, Co-Founder Quint to deep- dive into the innovations necessary to keep India’s youth engaged. How are journalists overcoming challenges and creating compelling news stories as the COVID-19 crisis continues? As former TV Channel Executives, both Faye and Ritu take us through their gradual but definite shift to online news and what it takes to stay true to their journalism and still be successful at building a solid community online.
While Quint has looked at story telling through a smooth blend of video, audio, graphics and text, offering a modern, sharp take on the world, Faye has built a stellar 500 K Instagram following by reinventing news through her very popular “News that Should be Headlines” and “Good News Tonight”-both targeting Young India.
The webinar will be moderated by Richa Arora, Co-Founder, Metapixel Studios and Ex-Group Head, Promotions and Marketing, NDTV Network.

Topic: The Disruption Opportunity
Description: India is a very diverse country with not just distinct content preferences but also contrasted lifestyle, media consumption habits, and above all budgets and value propositions. It has been noted that the current, deeply unfortunate and unprecedented, crisis has led to visible and positive outcomes for the OTT Streaming platforms, while there continues to be a debate on what all will hold up and what will slip by when the markets return to normalcy. Data recorded in this period also seems to have limited ability to forecast growth for the future, while the data from the pre-covid period may not be of as much utility. Further, the response of the market and different stakeholders in this business has been contrasted, perhaps leading to new business models. And, in all this the state owned Doordarshan became the No.1 channel for some weeks, highlighting the market complexity. Therefore, while it looks all-positive for OTT industry, the job of the programming executives must have become ever more complicated. Learn all these through the session and get up-to-speed on how the finest platforms of the country realised, reacted and re-purposed their teams, budgets and strategies to manage this massive disruption and demonstrated their value.
