Newsrooms are shrinking. The race to break some news is getting tougher by the day. With tons of news channels on television, plus digital publications and social media riding the hypercurrent wave of constantly relaying news and updates, it’s a challenge to report events in the traditional way with a camera crew. That’s where mobile journalism steps in to save the day.
The Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MIB) will now have OTT platforms and online platforms streaming news and current affairs under its purview, thanks to the gazette notification issued on 11 November 2020, duly signed by President Ram Nath Kovind.
