Nikki Usher's research and teaching interests focus on the transforming world of digital media, from journalism to big data to information and communication technologies (ICTs). Her background in media theory and effects, sociology, and communication has given her an appreciation of the wide-range of possibilities for discussing and analyzing today's media environment--from the changing nature of politics and social media to open government to hacking to the challenges and opportunities facing today's news landscape.

Her primary area of research focuses on how journalism is adapting to change. For much of this research, she has traveled to newsrooms across the world and the U.S. to learn about how journalists do their work and the decisions facing these news organizations in difficult times. From her initial research at The New York Times, which has now led to a book, to research at Al Jazeera, The Guardian, the BBC, the AP, NPR, The Washington Post, and the list continues. She is considered an influential voice in the future of news conversation, and has been asked to weigh in on annual news round ups for the past few years on topics such as social media to the rise of niche news. She primarily uses field research, ethnographic methods, and other qualitative work to discern patterns about news production.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a detailed, nuanced, and engagingly written look at how the Times is adapting to the challenges of the digital age. The author's love of journalism and the Times comes through clearly, but doesn't impede her ability to look critically -- and with unique insight -- at how the paper has sometimes struggled to integrate its tradition of the highest standards of print journalism with the demands of online publishing and social media engagement. Most interesting for me were the thoughful discussions of the ethical issues raised by these changes. Highly recommended for anyone who cares about how news is made.

I am not a journalist or an academic, but I found this book to be a fascinating peek into the New York Times and how the culture and standards of journalism changed with the growth and demands of online journalism. Dr. Usher brought insight into an aspect of media that now I think is not talked about enough. I loved how she was able to bring in interesting historical anecdotes and make them feel relevant. I definitely view the news - and especially online news media websites - with a completely different perspective having read this book.

Dr. Usher provides an excellent introduction to the workings of the modern newsroom in the digital age. She explores the ever-changing relationship between social media and print journalism with an attentive eye for detail. Her writing style is lively and accessible for non-academic readers like me. i especially enjoyed the discussion of Twitter's integration into the newsroom. Highly recommended for those interested in the future of journalism or want a peek inside the workings of a celebrated newspaper.

Format: Paperback
As a journalism student, finding out where news comes from has always been of interest to me. Who makes the final decisions? What content makes the cut? Whose job is it to tweet at 3 AM? In this captivating and eye-opening read, Usher delves into these questions and more as she shows what it's truly like to make news at The New York Times. Definitely recommend for anyone studying journalism.
