New Study on Roles of Journalists in Online Newsrooms

“A new study of the skills and characterisitics important to online newsrooms has been released by Medill Schol of Journalism and the cooperation of the Online News Association.”

  • The Roles of Journalists in Online Newsrooms, by C. Max Magee, released November 1, 2006: “The survey findings depict an online journalism that is tethered to traditional journalism in many ways, but is not merely a more technologically focused version of traditional journalism. The picture that emerges from this study is of journalists who must be well-versed in many aspects of journalism and technology, rather than experts in one or two types of tasks. For online journalists and their managers, this report will provide a look at the current state of their industry.”
