My research topic is “Television Journalism in the Digital Age”. As users have become more reliant on smart-phones and mobile technology, the way we have come to acquire information has also changed. Users can acquire information anywhere, anytime. The purpose of my research is to seek ways on how TV Journalism should evolve with the digital age. My focus is on how TV journalists should change the way they cover news with the following methods: (1) How to adopt new technology to cover news (2) How to expand data based journalism for TV Journalism (3) How to collaborate with citizens, NGO&NPO, and Research Institutes.
