For nearly 50 years Business Wire has long served two constituencies: those companies and organizations that distribute their press releases over our network; and information recipients, foremost among them members of the media. Today we are conducting a short survey to look at the news gathering process of today’s journalists.
The term “journalist” has expanded over the years from professional reporters and writers to include more audiences like bloggers, vloggers, etc. The way the media goes about their everyday news gathering efforts has changed as well. This quick survey looks at traditional news sources, multimedia, social media, and the usage of these communications tools.
Our Global Media Relations team works with reporters across the world everyday to provide them with free access to our PressPass service and other tools for journalists. These brief surveys help keep us aware of the changes in work-flow among an audience critical to our business so we can continue to offer solutions to match their needs.
If you’re a member of the media please take a moment — 94 seconds, actually — to take our survey today.
