    Digital Journalism

    My realization of the progression in journalism came after I read the book Digital Journalism: Emerging Media and the Changing Horizons of Journalism, edited by Kevin Kawamoto. This book is an informational collection of essays that defines digital journalism. Each essay, written by various professionals in the field of digital journalism, provides detailed information as well as real life experiences to discuss the future of journalism. Editor Kevin Kawamoto provides a detailed discussion of where digital journalism is going, what it is, and why it is important in present day society. Each chapter presents a different topic from the history of digital journalism to an actual look at the experiences of a photojournalist. The information is presented in an outline format that makes it easy to follow the content in the chapter. The descriptive diction and details used made me feel like I was actually on an internship and I did not even have to leave my desk. As a journalism student at Oklahoma State University, Kevin Kawamoto¿s book Digital Journalism: Emerging Media and the Changing Horizons of Journalism helped me identify what digital journalism was and how it is applied in specific careers. After reading many other books and articles on this subject this one is by far the best one for students.
