& Academics:
It's a multimedia world, and today's journalists must develop a multimedia mindset. How does this way of thinking change the newsgathering and news production processes? Having conceived of and written Advancing the Story: Quality Journalism in a Digital World 4e in this changed media landscape, broadcast veterans Debora Halpern Wenger and Deborah Potter seamlessly build on the fundamentals of good television reporting while teaching students to use depth, interactivity and immediacy as they maximize the advantages of each platform. While retaining the book's clear instruction and advice from those in the trenches, the authors focus on updating to reflect the latest issues and trends with: greater emphasis on social media and mobile media to gather, promote and disseminate news content; expanded coverage of media ethics and media law; extended examples of effective reporting across multiple platforms; updated writing exercises and new resources for reviewing AP style; and additional interviews with journalists at the forefront of industry changes.
