Student Ernesto Morales Interns with Sacramento Bee

August 4, 2014

SACRAMENTO BEE -- Of all The Bee’s interns this summer — we have 15 in news — only the youngest, Isabelle Taft of Yale University, still prefers the printed newspaper to stay informed. That’s a preference I more often hear from readers at least in their 50s or 60s. Yet the habits of our interns reflect modern-day news consumption — they are choosing to read what they want, when they want it and how they want it. What do these digital natives think journalism will look like in 10 years? Ernesto Morales of San Francisco State University predicts continued shrinkage of print while online news remains strong.
