    • Abstract:
      Our content analysis conducted in 2007 revealed little evidence of convergence practices in television networks and newspapers owned by Canwest Global, CTVglobemedia, and Quebecor. In 2009 and early 2010, we interviewed executives and journalists of the media groups studied, as well as other stake holders, to assess the current situation and speculate about the future of convergence in Canada. Respondents generally acknowledged that TV/print newsroom integration had not succeeded and that future convergence efforts would focus on delivering content online and developing a viable economic model for news production. Respondents offered diverse perceptions of conventional media's ability to reinvent and sustain themselves as the principal news sources for Canadians. Emerging models include the development of a corporate news service, specialization in certain topic areas, and cross-media collaboration. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

Nous avons réalisé une série d'entretiens aupré s de gestionnaires et journalistes des médias étudiés, de même que d'autres acteurs du milieu, en 2009 et 2010, afin de recueillir leur evaluation de la situation actuelle et leur vision de l'avenir de la convergence médiatique. De l'avis général des participants, l'intégration des nouvelles télévisuelles et de la presse écrite ne s'était pas réalisée et les initiatives futures s'orienteront surtout vers l'offre en ligne et la rentabilisation des contenus d'information. us ont émis des points de vue varies quant a la capacité des médias conventionnels de se réinventer et se maintenir en tant que sources principales d'inforniation pour les Canadiens. Parrni les mode les émergents identifies : le développement d'agences de presse corporatives, la spécialisation thématique et la collaboration entre médias. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
