Com Majors and the Newsroom of the Future

Gannett Company, the largest newspaper publisher in the U.S., is rolling out a plan to radically change the way their newsrooms are structured.  We have seen for quite some time that today’s journalists need to be able to communicate in both a written and visual form.  It would appear that digital media are changing these requirements even further.  Individuals are being hired that have expertise in audience analysis, web metrics and analytics, social media, event planning, and digital and multi-platform production. It would appear that today’s Communication majors are prime candidates for jobs in tomorrow’s newsrooms–both in large broadcasting corporations and private organizations. For more information read an interesting blog post by Dr. Mu Lin, a digital journalism professor in New Jersey.
