Not so, says a new report from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. Go faster, the journalists generally say.
The survey of 3,800 journalists at 79 newspapers found a real digital appetite. The Turn Back The Clock segment accounted for only six per cent of the group, hardly a significant rump and half the size of the digital-oriented group that wants to keep adding to its new media work. The largest cohort, nearly half of the total, would like to split time almost equally between legacy and new media.
The report found job satisfaction reasonably high, reporter concern about managers reasonably negative, and solutions to some of the challenges reasonably easy to accomplish without extra resources.
