Journalist bloodbath: New Beat research to find out what happens to journos and journalism.
Journalists all over the world have lost jobs in their thousands due to the digital first transition.
South Africa is participating in a worldwide survey called The New Beats, and Prof Glenda Daniels from Wits Media Studies dept is heading SA’s wing of the research.
Could you kindly participate in the research and fill out the survey if: you were a journalist, an editor, a sub, or photographer, who has left the newsroom for other pastures such as start-ups, freelancing, PR, government communications, been retrenched, dismissed, taken a voluntary redundancy package, or early retirement, among other reasons.
