Can hyperlocals fill the gap?

journalism”, “participatory journalism”, “citizen journalism”, “hyperlocal journalism” and “ultra-local journalism”, to name but a few, with the last four all being different types of community journalism – reporting about a local community. The term “hyperlocal” was coined in 1991 by cable news pioneer John Hillis, to describe his innovation in the context of locally inserted news in a 24-hour news channel ( Pavlik, 2013 ). New types of local media are often referred to as “hyperlocal”. Hyperlocal websites principally serve local residents and tend to be produced by

Photojournalism in Central Europe
Editorial and Working Practices

digital photo equipment and continuous shooting can avoid the decisive moment altogether. With continuous technical innovation, the expansion of online journalism, and the tighter budgets of news organizations, photojournalists are expected to master new technology, learn multimedia skills, produce unique content, and shoulder additional responsibilities. Russial’s (2000) early study of digital imaging and its impact on photojournalism found that it increased the workload of photo departments. As increased production became a higher priority, it resulted in added

Childhood and Children’s Retrospective Media Consumption Experiences
The case of Norway

generations are diverse, and these need to be researched with thoroughness. All in all, it is necessary to explore the nature of different components, where the cultural setting, time and space are crucial for understanding historical and cultural conditions and the context for innovation. Memory studies provide one option for looking at historical reception, or what people remember of history, e.g. the ways it is made useful in their lives or, in this study, in meaning-making processes. Culture is, broadly speaking, regarded as a shared system of meanings that is learned

Public Organisations as News Producers
An odd species in the local media landscape

. For example, one theme during the first six months of the news site’s existence was “the digital patient”. Most of the articles published under this vignette presented innovative and modern technical innovations used within VGR’s health-care institutions. Among the articles emphasising sustainability is one about a health centre where the co-workers are offered the chance to use electric bikes instead of cars when making homecare visits. Another article is about recycling old furniture. This focus on sustainability mirrors one of the themes in the document “Vision

The Visual Power of News Agencies

providers of news imagery. These agencies have typically invested huge efforts in their network-based news coverage worldwide, and, in particular, the visual services. The picture divisions of established news agencies have evolved into high tech institutions where cutting edge technologies and immediacy are the most important competitive assets ( Ilan 2012 ). The commercial use of photography along with clients’ quests for more live streaming prompts more innovation.

Disruptive technology in book and local newspaper industries

Introduction In the Norwegian book and newspaper industries, which are the focus of this article, we explore how the distribution of local online news and online books has been disrupted and how Generation Z is engaged in unpaid and paid consumption. Based on Christensen’s (1997) criteria for disruptive innovation and Cunningham and colleagues (2010) notion of disruptive distribution, our research questions for this study are the following: 1) What characterizes Generation Z in paying for books’ and local newspapers’ online content? 2) How is disruptiveness

Disrupting journalism from scratch
Outlining the figure of the entrepreneur–journalist in four French pure players

Introduction Despite the common idea that the internet is “killing” the media, the past decade has seen ongoing renewal in journalism, particularly online. In a 2012 article ( Christensen et al., 2012 ), David Skok, a journalist who was a Nieman Lab fellow, paired up with Harvard economist Clayton M. Christensen to encourage the media to “be the disruptor”. Together, they adapted Christensen’s original theory of disruptive innovation to the media, according to which businesses should regularly rethink their practice to match the evolving society and market
