Week 12 – The Future of the Newsroom

4 Apr

It’s already been shown how much the newsroom is changing. One of the biggest changes is the acceptance of social media into the fold.

The “crowdsourced newsroom” is the best example of this. Instead of being surrounded by other journalists, reporters and editors are moving toward a day where they surround themselves with social media feeds linking them to members of the community, who contribute at will.

That same aspect of social media takeover is also leading to an erosion of the old guard. The view of news outlets as institutions is being replaced by one that makes them equal members of the community, especially as papers and sites become more involved around the Web. More than ever, it’s clear journalism is a process — a two-way process that requires as much help and curiosity as possible if it’s to continue to evolve.
