Abstract:

For many years, the visual distinction between print and broadcast media was clear, however the Internet and multimedia have almost completely dissolved the boundaries of traditional media on the web. The purpose of this research is to examine the content and design that contribute to the evolving visual convergence format of web newspapers, radio stations and television station websites. A content analysis of 282 web newspapers, 112 radio station websites and 128 television station websites found that while news media have increased their presence on the web, they are still working to move beyond imitation of format and repurposing content from traditional media. All media have improved in the design and presentation of their content however, limited audience interaction to mostly email, and few provided streaming or even downloadable media content. Data indicate distinctions in the format of content and design across news media websites, however, sameness to the format of content and design of websites within media type; though some variation occurred with respect to network affiliation, station format, market rank and circulation size.
