More TV newsrooms are publishing their stories online and no longer waiting until after they air on TV as part of a shift to putting digital first.

Writing for RTDNA, Ben Bogardus, Quinnipiac University Assistant Professor of Journalism said trends in TV viewership are prompting the trend.

“With no sign that this trend will reverse itself, TV stations are right to experiment with converged “digital first” operations,” he wrote.

Bogardus goes on to suggest a list of ideas for how newsrooms can shift their thinking to being digital first.
