We are in an era where news headlines come as easy as a blink in eye online rather than the usual morning we await from the newspaper guy. It is easier to gossip about celebrities and breaking news online, whether be it you are about to sleep or in your downtime at work- It’s not anymore reading news headlines in the morning while sipping your cup of tea.
Indeed, a lot has changed over the years and this mainly affects our way of living. We are now enjoying news and information with just one touch of an app, hear updates from friends through social media and get in touch with people online.
And while we are embracing these changes, let us take a look back at our old school kinds of stuff, traditional media and how is it doing these days?
Instant articles, instant news. That’s how the world works now. A lot of leading social media platforms have leveraged traditional media to republish popular content. Meaning to say, traditional media isn’t dead and it still plays a vital role in the flow of digital age.
It is for sure that we are hyped with modernisation but despite that noticeable shift in the media industry through the 21st century Information Age, still, there are tens of millions of Americans who still utilise news that is originally reported and produced by traditional media — including state news and hyper-localized news in smaller media markets nationwide. And that’s something we still have to hold on from time to time.
Traditional media will never end. It’s silent, but it’s just there.
