Community group and industry veterans honoured by Media Industry

Print media, especially in the United States, is slowly dying with advancements being made in technology.

This is the view of Digital Journalism Expert David Ho, who spoke at a T&T Publishers’ and Broadcasters’ Association event last night.

He says numerous media entities have already started digitizing their systems in an effort to keep up with the changing environment.

Mr Ho says print media in T&T still has life in it, but the industry has to keep moving forward with technology.

A major challenge though, is the need for constant training for journalists in the evolving digital world.
