I always prefer to work in small or mid-sized newspapers,magazines or TV stations because there I can torn up the conventional news structures or my editors allow me to experiment with unconventional story angle as they are not market leaders in news.So they may have little to lose in experimenting with unconventional news structure.
In Calcutta,I am sorry to say that local newspapers or magazines or TV stations follow the same thing.The structure of news has change a lot in recent years.In the era of multi media journalism,digital correspondents,why we stick to the time tested journalism? we should ask ourselves.To change the structure,I highlight the changing scenario of India’s underground sex industry in my writings.After all, the computer savvy call girls of India as well as Calcutta take different approaches to woo customers unlike their traditional counterparts.
I may be a regional reporter,but I should be a global outlook.Why regional media takes traditional approaches and behave like regional media?They should learn from their American counterparts. They avoid sting operations and follow the same news structures.I get story ideas and brush up my journalism skill by reading regional newspapers or watching local TV stations around the world.In this digital age,I’m a global citizen.I try to follow ‘start with emotion rather than facts’ style.Always remember, now-a-days,we don’t need good reporters but reporters who think differently.
