Year in Review: here’s the 21 articles and podcasts I produced about changing journalistic practice in 2020
Dives into podcasting, local journalism, reporting, social media, and the different careers being experienced by young journalists
This is the second article in a short-series bringing together all of my work from the past year.
- Part One shared the three new research reports I dropped in 2020.
- Future round-ups will feature my work on media business and revenue models, digital/tech in the Middle East, the podcasts I’ve hosted, as well as the media mentions and interviews I was fortunate enough to secure.
Although there’s some cross-over between many of these categories, this installment looks specifically at my writing dedicated to journalistic practice.
