Splice Lights On
Covid's impact on media companies has all of us worried. Advertising has dried up, membership sales are slowing, while newsrooms are doubling down on covering the pandemic, at times putting journalists at physical and mental health risk.

The global community of media — entrepreneurs, journalists, investors, tech — needs an urgent response to this. And that's where this survey comes in.

Our goal is to get a better picture of the financial situation at media companies across the globe, so that we can all make better decisions on where to focus our efforts.

How much financial runway is left in newsrooms? How many media jobs could be lost? We're hoping to get a better picture through this poll.

This is for media organizations. The survey will take 5 mins of your time. We'll publish the findings publicly, but we'll anonymize that data (no names will be used unless we ask your explicit permission). However, we'll be briefing our media support partners privately, and may share details of this data so that they can take potentially extend help directly to you.

If you have any questions, please email us at hey@splicemedia.com.
