The future of journalism through the eyes of interns

Juniper Rose likes the convenience of audio news. Katrina Cameron reads news mostly on her iPhone. For Vanessa Ochavillo, Twitter is the best way to stay on top of many different news sources. Daniel Rothberg prefers emailed newsletters in the morning. Will Wright reads a variety of sites but follows Al Jazeera and Reuters for international news. Of all The Bee's interns this summer - we have 15 in news - only the youngest, Isabelle Taft of Yale University, still prefers the printed newspaper to stay informed. That's a preference I more often hear from readers at least in their 50s or 60s. Yet the habits of our interns reflect modern-day news consumption - they are choosing to read what they want, when they want it and how they want it.

Spreading the gospel of LinkedIn for Journalists

ImageThe classroom at the City University of New York sat attentively watching the browser on the large screen point to LinkedIn. Everyone in the room was familiar with the social network, but they were journalists and had come to see how they could use it for their own specific purposes. While explaining how the audience could use LinkedIn, Corporate Communications Manager Yumi Wilson was also ushering them through a social media door, one she has unlocked for journalists in person or through online webinars over the past several months.  It's all part of an expansion strategy for LinkedIn, which has seen membership grow exponentially from 32 million members in 2008 to 300 million in 2014. One part of that strategy is inviting journalists into a group called LinkedIn for Journalists, which boasts more than 55,000 members.
