Future of Media Explained podcast 13: Newsroom leadership with ex-Insider news boss Jim Edwards

By Charlotte Tobitt

Newsrooms could traditionally be a toxic place full of shouting and abuse. Thankfully most are no longer like this, but some bad habits remain.

Even among the well-intentioned, it is difficult to be a good manager – especially when you are promoted from an on-the-ground position with no management experience or training.

Jim Edwards, who this year left his role as editor-in-chief for news at Insider and was previously founding editor at Business Insider UK, has written a book called Say Thank You for Everything sharing what he has learned about how to be a good manager and leader.

In this episode of the Future of Media Explained podcast, Edwards tells Press Gazette UK editor Charlotte Tobitt about some of the most common management mistakes in newsrooms and how to fix them.
