Abstract

Drawing on the theory of technological convergence, this study primarily investigates how technological convergence is reshaping the journalists’ practices of news production and distribution in Pakistan’s ethnic news media. This study also comparatively analyses challenges and constraints experienced by the Pakistani journalists from mainstream and ethnic news media to use digital technology (i.e. the use of computers, multimedia, the internet, mobile phones, digital journalism tools, algorithmic or computer-assisted reporting). To achieve these objectives, this study uses the qualitative methods of document-review, in-depth interviews and focus group discussion. Finally, this study offers a thematic analysis of qualitative data.
