The Future of TV Journalism
Imported radio format today reaches large audience worldwide, and is in many countries the main source of information. The anchor came only in 1952, in the skin of Walter Cronkite, the CBS (photo below).
Two news items recently made the world rethink the true role of anchor on the news and its importance, the retirement of the first anchor woman in the world, Barbara Walters and one of the greatest journalists of all time Diane Sawyer, both of ABC.
Barbara Walters (84) was the first woman to present a news program on TV and the ABC. Is also emphasized his interviews, even with nothing intimidating voice, and could major confessions exclusive reports. She is currently the executive producer of its own program of morning talk show "The View." Just curious your salary is $ 12 million annually according to Forbes.
Have Diane Sawyer (68) with a more direct and aggressive stance, have on your resume to a spokesperson for the White House, also wrote the text of President Richard Nixon at the time. Currently she performs at "ABC World News" (second highest-rated newscast in the United States) and the morning program "Good Morning America." On Wednesday (25) Sawyer said on 2 September this year will leave the bench "ABC World News", giving rise to the current presenter of "ABC World News Weekend," David Muir (40). In addition to anchor, she is also editor in chief of the newscast, will be replaced by George Stephanopoulos (host of This Week).
The TV comes profoundly changing, slipping ratings and revenues, entered journalism in the digital age (this site for example) now the squad great journalists and presenters (Jay Leno and David Letterman). This is the only way to stay alive in journalism or a natural process?
Another question I ask is but the final major newscasts are in the range from 18:30 to 23:00, there you will have seen much of the material on the internet or on the radio, his greatest distinction are the exclusive stories (which has recently decreased because of the lack of investment of media outlets) and then you'll see on the internet. But you have idea, SBT Brazil Joseval presented by Peixoto and Rachel Sheherazade, after the opinions of the anchors stop Internet newscast audience was 3 points to 7, with peak up to 11 points. A good sign that Internet TV may go hand in hand.
