From Press Gazette to paidContent

The future beckons. My big news is that I’m leaving Press Gazette this week to join paidContent as UK correspondent. Read the announcement here.

Tameka Kee also joins as West Coast correspondent based in Santa Monica, so congratulations to her.

I’ll be the company’s London-based reporter writing mainly for paidContent.co.uk. It is, to say the least, a very exciting job in a very exciting sector.

And it’s the end of two years at Press Gazette, where I learned more than is practically possible and worked with great people. I’ve been written about many awards nights, redundancies, court cases, campaigns, leaked emails, sackings – and – the audience’s gradual move from print to screen, the birth of video and audio journalism as a mainstream disciplines in newspaper offices, the erosion of traditional financial models and the current search for new ones.

My contact for any tips, stories, ideas or just to say hello, is patrick@paidcontent.org and I continue to use patricksmithjournalist@gmail.com. And as ever I’ll be at www.twitter.com/psmith.
