In recent years, journalistic practices have undergone a radical change due to the increasing pressure of new digital media on professional practice. The ever-growing development of new technologies and the ceaseless fluctuation of social practices have challenged some of the traditional genres found in these professional contexts. On this basis, the book investigates the genre of tickers used by BBC World News over a year-long period.
