Guest Speaker

Earlier in the semester, we had a speaker during our Newspaper Production class named Chris Graham. He’s currently a print journalist attempting to make the transition from print towards new media.
His journalism career started in 1995 and his workplace only had one internet terminal; he had no idea how to use the internet. He didn’t even study journalism in college, yet began his career in print journalism.
According to Chris, "Youre gonna need that skillset of knowing how to do audio and its going to change the way you look at journalism..."
"Whether you want to or not you might all be in broadcast sometime soon..."

Chris also said that "in the next 10 or 20 years, I don’t know maybe 5, you're gonna start seeing every newspaper on the web..."

Although personally, I think it will be sooner.
