In recent times social media is not only a platform for getting social but has become one of the best news sources. News consumers find it convenient to get news from social media in their daily lives from platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and other social sites.
In the latest study conducted by Pew Research Center, they discussed the demographic profile identification of regular social media news consumers in the United States.
From where do news consumers get their daily news from? According to another study by Pew Research Center, nearly a third of Americans regularly get news on Facebook, becoming the most popular social media site for news consumption.
About one-third of U.S. adults (31%) report getting news regularly on Facebook, while about one-in-five (22%) report getting news regularly on YouTube. 13% and 11% of Americans regularly use Twitter and Instagram to get their news.
In addition, social media, as a news source, has continued to grow in popularity among news consumers, unlike other platforms such as newspapers, TV, and online sources combined.
It is the younger generation, specifically those under 25 who are leading the shift away from traditional news sources. The majority of people in that age group use social media to get their news information. People in the same age group reported viewing news on social media apps two times more often than they did on traditional media.
It is clear from the above statistics and information that news consumers heavily rely on social media sites for their daily news updates. Furthermore, how younger generations are shifting away from traditional news sources and turning to reels, short videos, and audio-visual news for engaging content consumption.
However, is your organization dominating these markets and acquiring new users on these sites or are you acquiring them on other platforms? Or are you coping with the constant changes in the engaging content dynamic?
If not, then how can it be done? How your news media organization can make an impact: We'll learn more about this in this article.

Why are Journalists Essential?
News media organizations are represented by their journalists. It is the journalists of every news media organization that are known for their amazing news delivery or their courage in reporting exclusive stories.
The audience recognizes these journalists first and later the brand. Listening to that same voice that we hear on prime time now, voicing videos and posts for social channels is something different and unique to delivering content for social channels.
Why only restrict your journalists to do prime-time, interviews, and live coverage? Leverage their voices to create short-long podcasts, short daily news summaries, audio-visual posts, reels voice over, and long-short form videos for social channels.
Your audience tunes into their TV to listen to your journalist because they trust them and know they'll get accurate information from them. There is already a trust relationship in place.
Using that already familiar trusted voice creates credibility for your online posts that are presented in the same host/journalist voice. Hence cementing your brand!
Do you want your marketing teams to produce branded content daily without requiring journalists to record their voices every time? Using Deepsync voice cloning technology, this can be accomplished!

Pre-recorded audio data of 1-4 hours.
Once provided with data our AI will train the voice to produce a natural-sounding cloned voice.
Once the voice is cloned content teams can use it to produce high-quality AI audio from just a script in minutes.
Ease of Audio Production with Journalist Voice using Deepsync
The traditional audio production process is extremely time-consuming, flawed, and not flexible enough if you’re looking to produce audio content on a daily basis. Here’s a small comparison of audio production the traditional way vs Deepsync voice cloning:
Traditional audio production process:
Since the recording person waits for the journalist to be present for the recording, time is consumed, and the recording person is dependent on whether the host/journalist is available.
A journalist or host cannot produce audio content without being present in the studio. In addition, it takes time out of the journalist's or host's busy schedule to record audio.
Recording audio: Recording audio is a time-consuming process that requires expensive, high-quality equipment.
The hassle of recording disturbance-free audio without any background noise.
Post-production: Adding sound, mixing and matching, vocal pitch correction, and audio trimming is the extra effort that eats up more time hence delaying everything.
How Audio Production looks with Deepsync:
Pre-recorded audio data: recording audio content manually takes 5-6 hours and eats up half a day. With Deepsync, journalists can get audio content made from pre-recorded audio.
Therefore, they can focus on their major tasks instead of worrying about giving time to the studio to produce content.
Step 1: Depsync requires pre-recorded audio data of 1-4 hours to produce a high-quality journalist-cloned voice.
Step 2: Once the voice is cloned it automatically eliminates the dependency of the recording person on the journalist. Hence saves time and eliminates dependency.
Step 3: Within minutes, the recording person can clone multiple host/journalist voices and then select from them to produce studio-quality audio content. Allowing them to be independent and productive.
