Journalism and New Media

John V. Pavlik

Columbia University Press

Ubiquitous news, global information access, instantaneous reporting, interactivity, multimedia content, extreme customization: Journalism is undergoing the most fundamental transformation since the rise of the penny press in the nineteenth century. Here is a report from the front lines on the impact and implications for journalists and the public alike.

John Pavlik, executive director of the Center for New Media at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, argues that the new media can revitalize news gathering and reengage an increasingly distrustful and alienated citizenry. The book is a valuable reference on everything from organizing a new age newsroom to job hunting in the new media.
An energetic, stimulating and optimistic look at 'the potential transformation of news content in a digital age.'... In the finest journalistic style, the author conveys a complex array of information in a clear, entertaining, and nontechnical manner that's sure to engage and please many readers. School Library Journal
Few books compare in detail, quality, and documentation, and similar works... are already somewhat outdated. Remarkable in scope, and in the author's meticulous approach, this is essential for all academic journalism/communications collections. Angela Weiler, State University of New York, Morrisville Library, Library Journal
Pavlik... briskly covers such devices as omnidirectional cameras and the complexities of digital reporting. He avoids the trap of being a mere enthusiast for every incoming gadget, and emphasizes emerging problems affecting privacy, accuracy, and editorial integrity. Columbia Journalism Review
Pavlik covers a lot in this book, from non-linear storytelling to the perennial question of profitability for news sites... Pavlik is at his best when discussing the digital newsroom and the tools that journalists will use in the future. He also has a lengthy chapter on defining audiences—a question we're all asking these days. Editor and Publisher
