Entrepreneurial Journalism


Today I am in Kota Kinabalu observing one of the Level 1 Citizen Journalism training sessions.

During the first break we discussed what entrepreneurial journalism meant. Clearly there is a need for basic news writing skills which is included in the CJ training. But other fundamentals that are missing include basic blogging and social media skills as well as online business skills – how can a citizen journalist gain some monetary compensation for their contributions.

The conversation raises some interesting questions about overall media literacy in the context of the emerging news environment.

Blogging live now but more to come.
