Thomas Benkö started as digital editor at the Blick Group in 2000. After building up the evening newspaper “Heute,” he became a page editor at “Blick am Abend ” in 2008 and was later appointed deputy editor-in-chief. Since 2018, he has been leading the online presence of Blick.ch as Teamlead Digital.
Sandro Inguscio, Editor-in-Chief Blick.ch & Blick TV: “With Thomas, we are not only gaining a digital expert for this fundamentally important topic, but we can also build on the know-how of a long-standing employee who knows the newsroom, the colleagues, the processes and the challenges very well.”
Thomas Benkö: “I like to be at the intersection of innovation and journalism. Like the Internet, AI is not a trend that will eventually disappear, but a technology that is here to stay. AI offers a lot of potential, and I’m happy to be able to help make my colleagues’ work a little easier in the future – so that they have more time for expanding their creativity and conducting research.”
