The Sustainable Newsroom of the Future: Can Media Newsrooms Become Sustainable and Still Break the News?
Duhe, Sonya Forte; Tanner, Andrea; Peterson, Rick
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v5 n3 p145-159 2006
This article is a case study examining the media's commitment to sustainability in one southern state. The researchers surveyed both broadcast and print newsroom managers in South Carolina and observed student run newsrooms within the School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of South Carolina. Interestingly, both print and broadcast news managers indicated that their organizations were committed to sustainability in the workplace. However, data suggest that sustainability appears to be basically disregarded in South Carolina newsrooms both professionally and student driven. However, the data did reveal results that could aid in the implementation of environmental friendly practices in a newsroom environment. Based upon their findings, researchers suggest a basic ten point plan for newsroom sustainability. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
