Traditional news media are undergoing fundamental change. Old platforms, such as printed newspapers, magazines, TV and radio, are being supplanted by new platforms fueled by technological changes, including computers, tablets, and cell phones. News consumers are no long viewed as passive customers but as interactive participants who react to and sometime shape news through chat rooms, comment sections, online posts, and the like.
We hear a lot about collapsing economic models of the news industry, but less about changing models of news content as a result of these changes.
Here to discuss these trends as experienced first-hand are Dan DeMay and Jimmy Lovaas, both graduates of Shoreline Community College, and both now working for major online news services.
