ABC’s Jonathan Karl’s Advice For Journalists Both Old and New

mbtv_blogpost

ABC Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl tells mediabistroTV in part two of Media Beat, the days of pounding the pavement (or the phone), getting the story, and writing it up for that evening’s newscast or next day’s paper are long gone.

Social media has changed the game, adding the need for reporters to both monitor and engage. An early “reluctant adapter” to Twitter, Karl now says it’s impossible to cover his beat without it. But he cautions against overuse: “You can’t be distracted by all that stuff.”

And what advice does he have for up and coming reporters in this new digital age? Don’t forget the basics.
