This article is by Polis Summer School student Dillon Baker (@dillonaube) on a talk given by Ros Atkins (@BBCRosAtkins) Shedding light not only on how his new BBC News program Outside Source is adapting to the new digital environment, Ros Atkins also spoke about how his job has been impacted by technology’s ability to provide ‘intimacy at a distance’. Figuratively speaking, this means that we can get closer to an event while it is happening than ever before. It has allowed for an unprecedented degree of interactivity between journalist and the viewing public and has allowed the journalist to engage and respond in real-time to what’s going on around them. This drastically changes the dynamics of the relationship between the consumer and the media, with most of us now receiving our information in increasingly non-linear ways.
