Journalists and news reporters gather information about newsworthy events and write news that is broadcast in newspapers, radio, television and/or on the web. The job largely involves interpreting information, deciding whether and how to use it, and then presenting it in a clear and informative way. The job often involves communication with sources and correspondents, both abroad and domestically.
As a journalist or news reporter, you could for example work for newspapers and magazines, radio or television, or various online media. Journalists sometimes specialize in certain issues, such as sports, economics, politics, justice, employment or foreign/domestic news. Most reporters, however, need to be able to cover more than one particular field.
