This report begins by noting that newspapers are now producing cable television programs, leasing cable channels, and selling cable advertising; thus the first half of the report consists of articles examining that trend. The articles explain why and how newspapers entered the world of cable, why one newspaper dropped cable, the success of one newspaper's experience in cable, the changing role of a journalist, how newspapers pay television reporters, how to estimate the cost of cable, and the telepress experience. The second part of the booklet consists of articles that deal with other aspects of newspaper journalism, covering such topics as (1) graphics scanners, (2) pagination, (3) new portable terminals, (4) electronic library systems, (5) telecommunications, (6) newspaper databases, (7) radio news, (8) robotics, (9) the cost of features, and (10) journalism education in colleges.
