To define converged journalism, it must be understood that the common
purpose of any convergence is to bring several interests together.
Within the media, audiences can get news through the newspaper, internet,
television and radio. By bringing all of these facets together, journalism
can be integrated to provide the story, the sounds and the sights.
And most importantly, it can be done instantly.
In essence, converged journalism brings together all media for one
common purpose -- to relay news.
