This report outlines PSM's outstanding commitment to the production and distribution of trusted news and information. With a 5.7 billion euros investment in 2022, news accounted for almost a third of PSM's total programming expenditure.
This report finds that PSM are still key news providers supplying a 360° news offer with a reach that spans different devices, platforms, and touchpoints. To maintain their all-encompassing reach, PSM have to navigate a news market characterized by fragmented consumption, disinformation, and news avoidance while also defending their own legitimacy.
In the coming years, PSM newsrooms will need to balance a wide reach and the rule of universality while also managing potentially disrupting phenomena such as AI, dangerously low levels of news literacy and increasing competition.
