Journalism is experiencing an era of significant upheaval. Long-established business models that relied too heavily on advertising revenues are breaking down; journalism organizations are cutting resources and employees; and audiences have developed different habits and expectations when searching for information. The digital age has presented journalism with an array of significant challenges, but it also has brought great opportunities, and it is crucial to recognize them.
