Reuters Launches Research Subscriptions, Top Media Newsletters, and More: The Media Roundup | What’s New in Publishing

Today’s summary is brought to you by Peter.

What’s next for Media Voices?

Since launching our call for help a few weeks ago, we have received a large number of responses from podcast listeners and newsletter subscribers. We are extremely grateful for all the Ko-Fi contributions and offers of help we have received since we raised our hands and admitted that we were struggling to find a way forward.

This week, excited by the support we’ve had, the three of us got together to talk about what to do next. We met in sunny Evesham and spent the day looking at where we are, where we want to be and what we need to do to get there.

In a spirit of openness and transparency that we hope will help other SME media owners, we share the first ideas from our meeting. We haven’t solved the future yet, but we’re working on it with much more enthusiasm thanks to all of you.

Reuters launches research subscriptions for individuals

According to Axios, Reuters is launching a new subscription-based research business called Reuters Insight that will be aimed at people making strategic business decisions. The new business unit becomes Reuters’ first-ever subscription business aimed at individuals rather than entire companies. It will launch in the insurance sector, followed by pharmaceuticals, automotive, sustainability and supply chain.

Best media newsletters to follow

The Fix has compiled a list of media newsletters you can subscribe to and we are very happy to be among our favorites. It’s amazing to appear alongside Axios, Reuters, and The Rebooting, but there’s also a newsletter on the list that I’ve never heard of before. RQ1 is a monthly newsletter summarizing the most interesting recent research on journalism and the media and I subscribed to it!

Netflix adds ads in 2022 with help from Microsoft

In a report that made me think it might be a Stranger Things’ promo, Netflix has announced that ’80s personal computing pioneer Microsoft will be its “global technology and advertising sales partner” when it rolls out its ad-supported streaming option. Netflix hasn’t announced a date for the rollout of the cheapest tier, but it’s said it could be before the end of 2022.
