Abstract

This article assesses the concept of media convergence from a technological perspective. It presents digitization as a major factor —but not the only one— that gives rise to the process of convergence in the media companies, since it makes possible the merging of their management structures, job profiles and multimedia content. Starting from that description, this paper provides a prospective overview of the changes that may shape journalism in the future. In this analysis, several opportunities and threats are identified, considering the challenges that technological convergence poses to the media companies and, in general, to journalism as a profession.
