Extra extra.

Television news is watched by hundreds and thousands of people every night. Viewers tune in to see which stories make the main news, and on RTE and TV3, these stories can often influence news stories in print and radio after.

The face of TV news is changing to adapt to the pressures of online journalism. News based programmes like Frontline with Pat Kenny have had to adapt by adding interactive online aspects to programming, such as Facebook and Twitter. This means that through the show, Pat Kenny can read comments from his laptop on his desk. It’s about as interactive as it comes.

Websites for RTE and TV3 allow for an online news archive, extremely useful for people who have missed the news and don’t have the privellege of Sky Plus. This is the future for TV news and TV news based programmes. They have moved with the times, which shows great initiative. They are now providing extra to what they have always been known for.
