I’d like to learn more Journalism vocabulary in English. Is there a site for that? Ok, I should research at Google, but I’m doing my Journalism 2.0 exam now. One of the questions is how can a blog be useful for a beat reporter.
“A beat reporter is a journalist who has been assigned a particular area from which they are expected to generate news stories. Some times it is by design. An aspiring journalist might major in business or science with the hope of becoming a science reporter or a business reporter. Sometimes its a fluke. You’re the new guy or gal at the local newspaper and no one else wants to cover the library board. (from WikiAnwsers)”
I like this anwser. Real life: sometimes nobody wants to do that – it could be a chance.
