These could be the best of times for journalists

“It’s a terrific time for journalists to take their career into their own hands. It’s always been a very passive career … you move up from market to market and you don’t have to retrain yourself. But if you take the time to retrain, if you learn the new skills — and it’s not a matter of new skills for journalism, those rules stay the same — you throw yourself to the front of the pack.”

— Steve Safran, consultant at Audience Research and Development, quoted in an E-Commerce Times piece.
