Journalism has evolved and given rise to new media. From investigative and development reporting to tabloid journalism, sites like Vice, AJ+, Scroll, BuzzFeed, etc attract millions of eyeballs and are scooping up talented journalists. With the tools to create and share at our fingertips, being a journalist bears more challenges, responsibilities, and opportunities than ever before. This is not only breaking the norms of the profession but is also redefining the skill set that a journalist should possess. What is the future of Journalism? What defines a Journalist today?
