As the digital evolution continues, the roles of journalists, editors and the newsroom are changing with it. Editors today must direct their time and efforts towards digital delivery and social media while continuing to produce a high-quality print product. This in turn means that editors must be highly focused on innovation and even looking towards some of their new digital competitors for ideas on services and features.
