Digital offers journalists speed, immediacy, interactivity, and a global reach. It also enables new ways to gather, report, and distribute information. Thus, digital journalists have to become adept at, if not master, a wide range of skills. They have to report, interview, research, produce audio and video, do photography, present and publish stories, adapt those stories for different platforms, and connect to their growing networks via social media. And they have to do this in a rough-and-tumble business that hasn’t yet figured out what sustainable economic models should look like when monetizing content and fairly paying for labor has proven so elusive. This chapter provides the basics on these many roles. Also covered are the ways social media can be used to do journalism.
