Abstract

In this ethnographic study we examine how journalism interns present ideas at morning meetings in the professional environment of a media organization. We analyse not only the idea presentation at the meeting itself, but also how editors treat the idea presentation, and how the interns perceive the situation of presenting idea. We discuss the implications for innovation and creativity in the newsroom. The aim of the research is to gain insight into the socialization of journalism students in order to discuss and improve the academic and craft education of the students.
