Online Hindi News Portal Seeks a New Face of Journalism
Posted: Apr 19, 2019
Digital journalism often presents a bewildering array of choices for journalists- social networks, blogging, mobile devices, video, etc. The list seems endless.
As more people consume news online, digital organizations face the dilemma of reallocating resources to attract target audience and viewers while still trying to hold on to their potential viewers, and usually aging digital audiences. Moreover, the media’s concentration on celebrity, politics, sports, or infotainment is sacrificing coverage of more significant issues like health, opinionated pieces, and development on the altar of entertainment.
More generally, journalism has become the veil of selective silence and is captured by the urban-based media. For instance, the mainstream media has almost reduced the North-East to a footnote in Indian history and has become an invisible part of the world. In metropolitan India, the dominant image of the North-East remains that of an alien frontier.
New Business Model
The news portal, particularly, the ones that cater to the readers in Hindi domain are providing something different from what is offered by the mainstream media, these portals are also trying a new approach to the business of media which has been in trouble of late.
Moreover, the web has become the go-to point for the audience when it comes to getting information, it's the same for reporters too. Online, they find a myriad of perspectives and a library of knowledge that provides the context for stories.
