About the Book

This edited volume of essays analyzes how the entire practice of journalism in America has changed irrevocably due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Written by journalists and other industry professionals, essays outline an assortment of related topics, including the rapid adoption of new technology like Zoom, the state of public health reporting, diversity in journalism and more. This book also outlines major implications for the future of journalism, detailing some long-lasting changes that could impact generations to come. These shifts in journalism will have economic, social and ethical consequences long after the pandemic ends and could shift the entire paradigm for deciding what news is and how it is covered.
