We know the media landscape is changing. But what’s the perspective of the journalist? Here’s a valuable insight.
Things have changed since I trained as a journalist. A lot. But for some people I think there’s still this rather quaint view that the local newspaper’s reporters are merrily tottering off to their patches to gather news for tomorrow’s publication.
Not so! While I suspect this may be a more prevalent view in rural areas than cities and major towns, it certainly exists. I was aware that some of our councillors and officers needed an update on how the modern newsroom operates and the growing role social media plays in our world.
