My name is Andreas Marckmann Andreassen. I am Digital Editor and Head of News at the Danish magazine+news site Journalisten.
At night, I write books. I have published books on journalism, ethics and the EU.
In September 2020 my book on automation in the media was published. The book was printed in 20,000+ copies and sent to every member of the Danish Union of Journalists thanks to broad support from foundations and media partners.
The book is based on my fellowship project at the University of Southern Denmark. For a little less than a year, I built on my work experience with digital transformation of news media to research how automation changes journalism, and how we should adapt our competences, ethics, organisation and strategy.
I have interviewed 70+ sources – media professionals, researchers, technologists and startups – around the world.
I am currently working on an English version of the book, due in late 2021. In the meantime, you can read more about the project in Danish here.
If you want to stay updated on my project and the English version of the book, feel free to e-mail me.
