Abstract The rise of citizen journalism or social media is transforming journalistic practice worldwide. Newsrooms and newsroom practices are being restructured globally to meet the challenges of this new form of media. This paper will examine the implications for the profession of journalism but most importantly will dissect the implications for the disciplinary base of journalism within the academy. In particular the paper will focus on how the rise of this new form of media may compel journalism as discipline to secure and strengthen its interdisciplinary foundations.
