What does it mean to be a reporter in today’s world?
For decades, individuals picked up their newspapers for information on current or historical events. Among those events covered included social, political and sports activities. And you could always count on an opinion page with editorials and letters on the state of these affairs.
Our industry has grown from communication via a printed document to include radio, television, and now the Internet via computers and cell phones.
In many cases today individuals employ a multitude of means to obtain information previously supplied only by a printed newspaper. Still that information is provided by a writer - a journalist.
