During our last FIG class, we got the opportunity to tour the Newsy workplace. For those who are unaware of what Newsy is, it’s a media outlet that goes beyond the typical story to highlight new perspectives. And lucky for us, it’s based right here in Columbia!
On our tour, we got the chance to see the laid-back studio and office space that they work in every day, as well as the neat technology that they use to produce their stories. It was a really great experience and provided us with a glimpse of what our futures might look like if we continue to pursue convergence journalism.
When it comes to convergence reporting, Newsy is pretty much the expert. They deal with multimedia pieces on a day-to-day basis. It was an excellent example of what we are learning in class each week.
