Abstract

The "Print and Online Cultures in the Modern Newsroom" MQP examined the office cultures surrounding the newsroom and online department at the Worcester Telegram & Gazette. The perceptions of the newsroom and the online department towards themselves, the news, their audience, and ultimately each other were analyzed within the framework of professional authority, postmodernism and modernism. The acknowledgement of these perceptions will provide the first steps in reconciling the differences in the two offices' worldviews.
