Anthony De Rosa: Why Newsrooms Should Poach Tech and Startup Talent

Anthony De Rosa is Reuters’ Social Media Editor, where he’s also a columnist and host at ReutersTV. We sat down with him to discuss where the tech and news communities meet and, increasingly, overlap.

Being that the news industry has more than a few business problems these days, Anthony suggests hiring outside help. By choosing Craigslist, Groupon and Facebook as examples of places from which to steal employees, De Rosa makes a solid point: go where the success is, and learn from the people that have done smart things in the more turbulent and burgeoning media landscapes.

Anthony also discusses what news life is like at Reuters, which we’ll dive into in more detail over the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

If you want to create programs that target women, you really have to bring these programs to where they are. It is not enough just to say “we have this program that happens to include women.” There are very specific issues that women deal with, such as lack of mentorship and lack of sponsorship. In business, there is a difference between mentorship and sponsorship. Mentorship is giving advice and helping someone who might not even be in your company. Sponsorship, which happens a lot in big business, is where a senior manager takes someone under their wing and really decides they are going to help this person throughout their career, and that they will provide opportunities for growth.

Elisa Munoz, Executive Director of the International Women’s Media Foundation, discusses women in startups and technology, points out some of the challenges that women face when creating startups. 

Munoz also highlights women who have succeeded in digital journalism. Head over to the Global Editors Network to read more about their projects and why Munoz thinks its critical to elevate the voices of women who are creating digital journalism startups: Elisa Munoz: Women in startups and digital journalism
