Broadcast Journalism

Broadcast Journalism, is a type of news reporting presented to the public electronically or by radio instead of being published in newspapers. Media in broadcast journalism includes television, radio, and the Internet. Broadcast journalism is meant to be dispersed more quickly than older forms of journalism, including print media, and is meant to be more accessible. Radio and television broadcasts are designed to get the news out to a wide variety of people in language that is much less formal than traditional print media. News that is broadcast over the Internet can update people on events as soon as they happen. This can occur through articles, social media, and more.
