The world of media has expanded so much in the recent years, on-line has become one of the most important parts of the newspaper world.
In order to really understand this I interviewed Tom Ninestein from the Pensacola News Journal. He has been the metro editor for the paper for 15 years and the last 10 years the paper has had an on-line Web site.
“It allows us to be more competitive with radios and news,” Ninestein said. “For the future, convergence is up and coming. The printed product will continue, but on-line allows more outlets for news media.”
Ninestein also remarked that on-line media allows readers to be more interactive.
“In the past 10 years viewers had to write a letter to the editor and wait. The responses back and forth could take months. Now a viewer can respond within seconds of the story being posted,” Ninestein said.
