Encouraging and inhibiting idea development at morning meetings in the newsroom

Lene Rimestad

Publikation: AfhandlingPh.d.-afhandling


This study is dedicated to uncovering how idea development is encouraged or inhibited at morning meetings in the newsroom. Morning meetings or news conferences constitute a daily event in the work process in media organisations. Every day, the journalists present their ideas to editors and colleagues at these meetings. Ideas are the fuel of the machinery of the media organisation: Without ideas, no stories, without stories, no media, as Becker and Vlad state: “Story ideation will almost certainly remain the key process in news production” (2009). In this light the meeting is an interesting interactional setting to study, as it is part of the process through which ideas are accepted, rejected, modified or even neglected (Gravengaard and Rimestad 2012) in the newsroom.
