BALTIMORE — A topic that I will continue to interact with throughout my career is digital journalism.
Not only digital journalism, but public relations.
Currently, I am a web producer at a local television station in Baltimore. The job includes writing stories for web, using social media to push content and much more.
Eventually, I see myself going into the sports communications industry, which is where public relations comes into play.
I see myself doing multimedia work for a sports team in a public relations effort to increase fan engagement.
The most relevant topic for me this semester was the concept of digital convergence.
Digital convergence is the merging of media content to a wide variety of platforms such as laptops, tablets and smartphones.
This was the most relevant topic to me because I deal with it everyday at work. People are constantly reading news on our website, watching our latest YouTube videos and much more.
Digital convergence will continue to evolve and change with the technology landscape. Virtual reality could be a way digital convergence evolves.
There were many important topics discussed this semester that I will continue to take with me throughout my career.
