                  1. Convergence involves reporter who is a specialist in a particular area.

                          2. Rich Gordon, identified five forms of convergence
                            1. Ownership convergence
                              1. Applies to de partnership between print and television. They share information and content.

                                2. Structural convergence
                                  1. Is when media companies re-organize the newsroom and introduce new positions.
                                  2. Information-gathering convergence

                                        1. Changing acttitudes & Lifestyles of new consumers
                                          1. A research report by BIGresearch of Columbus found that half of the consumers used multiple media simultaneously

                                                              2. Factor helping " difficult" convergence, included:
                                                                1. The organization has different owners.
                                                                  1. Other leadership priorities
