Mobile Journalism - Harness the Power of your Mobile phone.
Are you harnessing the potential of your smartphone to create content for your radio station, it's website and social media platforms?. The power of the smartphone has changed the way in which many stories are created and reported on across many media platforms and radio and TV are fast adopting this technology. However, the core skills of a journalist are still the most essential part of the role. Fairness, objectivity, accuracy, impartiality, credibility, verifiability and sound editorial judgement are, and will continue to be, the cornerstone of journalism, irrespective of platform. However, journalists have an opportunity to add value to their role by enhancing their skill set. Being aware of technology trends experimenting with and becoming proficient with these new tools can only be advantageous in the medium term.
