Abstract

During the second half of the 20th century, television news became one of the most influential forms of mass communication in Brazil. Despite the emergence of new media and online journalism, television news continues to play a pivotal role in the country's media landscape and society. Recent political and academic developments have created a positive intellectual environment, which has resulted in a new wave of empirical and theoretical research on television journalism. This article seeks to participate in that debate by discussing the past and the future of television news, examining closely the effects of online and digital technologies on the quality of television journalism. By looking at the history of television news and peering into the future, the authors offer suggestions on how to improve this significant form of journalism.
