The future of journalism is promising--105036 2012年9月26日 (三) 10:07 (UTC)


Spending one fourth of a century in the newspaper industry, Tim Chan, executive chief editor of the Hong Kong Economic Journal, said, “I can’t really see how important it is for making financial news”. Attended a sharing section at Shue Yan University yesterday, he, although, holding a pessimistic view on newspaper industry, he believes working in journalistic field has a promising future.

“It is a sunset industry,” Chan said, ”I can hardly find a person reading a newspaper on the MTR in these recent years.” In 1995, it is possible to see half of the passengers fingering through the newspaper. With the rapid growth of technology, 17 years later, people tend to put their fingers on their smartphones scrolling or tapping.

Does that mean working as a journalist is not promising? Chan said no with a serious look, “it is actually the best time to do news.” Thanks to the technology growth, the demand for news has increased significantly as it is much easier to reach the public. The urge to obtain information forces the field to do it better and faster. “It’s not a matter of how to produce, but who needs the news,” Chan said.
