The future of journalism is being shaped by technological developments and social and political changes. A new generation of trained journalists will play a crucial role in upholding the integrity of the profession in an evolving media landscape, rising to meet not just the challenges but also the immense opportunities in the industry.
The digital renaissance and advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has pushed the media industry to the brink of a complete transformation, with organizations choosing to strategically adapt to the ongoing changes. While the impact of this is debated widely, there is no denying that there will be an entirely new spectrum of job profiles in the journalism and media industry within the next few decades.
Traditionally, journalism students have worked in news reporting and production, writing and research, content creation and management, film production, public relations, communications, event management, advertising, marketing and allied fields. In addition to this, the new career paths that are opening up will be driven by the need to innovate and solve industry problems. These could be at an independent and entrepreneurial capacity or as part of a larger organization. Some of the predicted future job roles in journalism are Ethical AI Advisor, Cybersecurity Journalist, Community Engagement Manager, Verification Specialist, Data Journalist, to name a few.
