Marie-Noelle Valles runs AFP TV, Agence France-Presse's video operation since 2010.

As a result, the scope of AFP video has broadened steadily among televisions and digital media around the world, making it the main growth driver for the century-old international news agency.

Hazel Baker

Digital Editor (Newsgathering), Sky News

Eyewitness video, pictures and interviews are often central to Sky News' output when stories break - and it is my task as Digital Editor to source, verify and clear this content for use in our reporting. In my eight years at Sky News, I have seen user-generated content (UGC) grow in quantity, quality and importance. I have also encountered many ethical and legal challenges arising from the treatment of this media. I am always looking for new social media search strategies and strive to further our longer-term journalism by seeking out case studies, story tips and interesting video. Prior to becoming Digital Editor, I worked on the Home News desk and as a Producer for digital and broadcast output.

Moustafa Aljarad

Artist

My full name is Moustafa ِAljarad, famous as Moustafa Jacoub, Jacoub is the name of my father, basically I am communications engineer, but also I am an artist, art is my passion and I hope to become a global artist.

4 years ago, I started protesting for democracy over dictatorship. I protested with my voice and also with my art. One year and 4 months after the protests began, I fled Syria. I left because my life was in danger. I could have stayed but only if I stopped doing my art. Only if I agreed to be silent in the face of atrocity. I couldn't do that. So I escaped. First to Germany, and then to Houston, Texas, in the United States, where I live today. I work as a cashier by day and I do my art at night. I will never stop doing my art. I will not be silent. I hope to find the right place that I can realize my aspirations as an artist who serves the humanitarian issues in the world

Elmar Thevessen

Deputy Editor-in-Chief, ZDF

I am a news junkie - always have been. And while the tools to feed that habit have changed over time, I have been lucky enough to be right in the middle of news in the making for almost 25 years. I started out in 1991 at ZDF’s office at Germany’s former capital Bonn covering interior politics and security issues. Somehow this stuck. As North America correspondent based in Washington from 1995-2001 I reported not only on those colorful Clinton years, the internet boom, a whole variety of social and economic issues, but also on the bomb attacks in Oklahoma City, Atlanta, Kenia, and Tanzania.

In May 2001 – after moving to Berlin – our team revealed Al-Qaida’s German Connection for our investigative magazine „Frontal 21“. Little we knew at that time, how big this story would become a few months later. So, when I started to work at the news department in 2003, I continued to serve as ZDF´s security analyst explaining the roots and deeds of extremist movements and terrorist organizations around the world.

Today, I am running the news department which consists of about 300 people in seven editorial teams and shows covering current affairs ranging from the hard to the soft issues that are newsworthy enough to be reported. In the middle of most challenging world events, we are transforming our unit into a real crossmedial operation which includes the brandnew news programme „heute+“ targeting younger audiences. The whole „heute“-family is a vital part of ZDF´s success as the best rated TV channel in Germany.

Well, I have to admit, the past two years of continuous crisis coverage have been so pressing, that the news junkie - now 48 years old - needs a break more often. Spending time with my family, running through the wonderful landscape of Rhine-Hessia, reading and writing books, and being in touch with friends through social media, those are the things that get me back on track and trigger new ideas i.e. creating collaborative projects we can work on with our great friends and partners within EBU.

HEADLINE

Raring to go for Rio 2016

This News Xchange much of the focus is understandably upon the reporting of the constantly evolving situation in Syria as well as the growing migrant and refugee crisis in Europe. Operating from challenging and unpredictable parts of the world are part of the bread and butter of most large news organisations. But, while day to day editorial focuses on the news at hand, long term planning for major set-piece events is a vital part of the news process.
