Summary Convergent Journalism: An Introduction explains what makes a news story effective today and how to recognize the best medium for a particular story. That medium may be the web, television, radio, newspaper, magazine - or, more likely, several of the above. This text will explain how a single story can fulfill its potential through any media channel. Convergent Journalism: An Introduction shows you, the news writer, editor, reporter, and producer, how to tailor a story to meet the needs of various media so your local news story can be written in a form appropriate for the web, print, PDA screen, and broadcast. In addition, this book explains the characteristics and best applications for print, broadcast, and web graphics.
