The Increase of Online Journalism in Nepal

The Increase of Online Journalism in Nepal In the past two decades, Nepal has gone through revolutionary changes in the traditional model and the online or digital model of journalism, progressively adapting to contemporary global trends in news-making. Both models are developing and show greater participation of the people. However, these two models have certain pros and cons, which make them preferable to other models in terms of accessibility, low price, reliability and enforceability. This article plans to offer a hypothetical reflection on the emergence of online journalism in Nepal. At the same time, the article discusses how traditional media has evolved over time and the impact of digital media on the working of traditional media. This article also argues that, to ensure the best and positive use of the internet and related technologies for communication, Nepal needs to develop an online media policy. Consequently, the author concludes that both models do not run contrary to each other and can work together for greater results. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Asia Pacific Media Educator SAGE

Abstract

In the past two decades, Nepal has gone through revolutionary changes in the traditional model and the online or digital model of journalism, progressively adapting to contemporary global trends in news-making. Both models are developing and show greater participation of the people. However, these two models have certain pros and cons, which make them preferable to other models in terms of accessibility, low price, reliability and enforceability. This article plans to offer a hypothetical reflection on the emergence of online journalism in Nepal. At the same time, the article discusses how traditional media has evolved over time and the impact of digital media on the working of traditional media. This article also argues that, to ensure the best and positive use of the internet and related technologies for communication, Nepal needs to develop an online media policy. Consequently, the author concludes that both models do not run contrary to each other and can work together for greater results.
