We partnered with over a dozen journalist-focused organizations to survey 2400+ journalists about topics ranging from the challenges of reporting during COVID-19 to what they're looking for in pitches.
Here’s a sneak peek of findings from our 2021 survey:
- The average journalist works 3 or more beats
- 94% of journalists say that some, most or all of their reporting has pivoted to angles related to COVID-19
76% of journalists say Twitter as the most valuable social network to them. 34% of journalists plan to cut back on Facebook.
- The average journalist receives over 5 pitches per day but writes fewer than 5 stories a week, only 25% of which come from pitches
