Christoph Rüth, Funke
Accelerating Growth of FUNKE’s Regional News Business
Christoph Rüth, Group Managing Director Regional Media and Digital FUNKE Mediengruppe: Last year FUNKE doubled the number of its digital subscribers and recorded over 1 billion visits across all news websites. We see a great potential for digital subscriptions mainly driven by user centricity and strong content. However, there are still too many user groups who do not feel addressed by our online offerings. In order to understand exactly which topics are driving response and subscriptions in each local market, we need to break down the boundaries between journalism, data and tech. CUE can be an enabler on this mission.
