About the Presentation
How do innovative technologies influence the consumption of news?
When news is broadcasted via smart speaker, consumer behaviour differs significantly compared to traditional media such as radio, TV or even devices like smartphones and tablets. Users of smart speaker are not only younger and more affluent, they are also more conscious and active in using their own voice. News podcasts play a central role especially for smart speaker users and have the potential to change the audio landscape significantly and to become the radio of the future.
What impact do exceptional situations like the COVID-19 pandemic have on the news behaviour of citizens?
During the Corona pandemic, the value of news has increased significantly for a large part of the population. They are consumed above average - especially at the beginning of the pandemic. In addition, the number of trial subscriptions is increasing rapidly. However, this effect is hardly sustainable - with the relaxation of corona-related measures, subscription numbers are falling again significantly and there are few incentives to extend trial subscriptions for a fee.
