Journalists are increasingly being asked to work in bi-media or multimedia environments where their work appears on multiple platforms. This unit provides students with an understanding of the complexities of this new media environment. It looks at the newsgathering and news writing skills required to work in this environment and the types of multi-skilling used in multi-media newsrooms.
