From PDAs to cell phones to computer screens, journalism is no longer confined to the printed page; now journalists must learn to move confidently across a variety of media platforms. In Principles of Convergent Journalism--a skills-oriented introduction to this timely topic--Jeffrey S. Wilkinson, August E. Grant, and Douglas Fisher provide an essential guide to navigating the increasingly complex and vibrant media landscape.
A cutting-edge resource for both up-and-coming and established journalists, this innovative text challenges students to create convergent journalism that is both pivotal and distinctive. Beginning with a brief primer on basic reporting and interviewing skills, this volume also covers the following topics:
* Repurposing both print and broadcast content for the Internet
* Key principles of broadcast writing and reporting for print reporters
* Key principles of print writing and reporting for broadcast reporters
* Writing news for the Internet
* Incorporating convergent journalism techniques into other emerging media
Ideal as a core text for courses in convergent journalism or as a supplementary text in news writing and reporting courses, Principles of Convergent Journalism imparts new skills that, when put into practice, will produce versatile, dynamic, and accomplished journalists.

"This text is long overdue! Convergence has been talked about for years but few have put forth the effort to help explain it in a way that faculty can use in a classroom. The authors do a good job of explaining the relationships between the various traditional media while providing evidence that convergence is happening regardless of those who refuse to admit it. The text is skills-oriented, and that is so critical in today's curriculum. Students learn by doing, and this text does a very good job of comparing similarities and differences among media."--Colin Pillow, Arkansas State University
