Welcome to the class blog for JOUR 3708: Newsroom Management. I will use this blog to link to additional readings and resources on the web related to our class. I intend to post here regularly and expect you keep up to date on information posted here. I highly recommend subscribing to this blog and those of your classmates through an RSS reader such as Google Reader (details about subscribing to blogs will be provided after you’ve set up your new gmail account).
During this course we will look briefly at the history of the journalism industry. We will pay close attention to how the industry has undergone dramatic changes as more and more people go online to look for their news.
As this is the first time for me to teach this course, I will be learning along the way too. I’m very excited about the journey before us and look forward to challenging and interesting semester.
I’d like each of you to take a few moments to complete the following survey. It will help me to get a sense of your background journalism knowledge and experience.
