User: which form of media convergence, technology or business, has the most influence on your news consumption? Why?

Weegy: Media convergence is the merging of mass communications outlets: print, television, radio, the Internet along with portable and interactive technologies through various digital presentation platforms. [ Media convergence is a phenomenon as revolutionary to communication as the invention of movable type or electronic communication. The rise of digital communication in the late 20th century made it possible for media organizations (or individuals) to deliver text, audio and video material over the same wired, wireless or fiber-optic connections. At the same time, it inspired some media organizations to explore multimedia delivery of information. This digital convergence of news media, in particular, was called "Mediamorphosis" by researcher Roger Fidler, in his 1997 book by that name. The most obvious form of media convergence is the mega-meld between companies like Microsoft and NBC. This collaboration and others like it (CNNSI) just scratch the surface of convergence's potential. Even before the advent of MTV in 1981, which combined elements of radio and television, companies were repurposing the same material for different mediums. A truer form of convergence is emerging at the local level. Television stations, radio stations and print publications within a market are working together to create websites that incorporate the advantages of each medium. A single story on a web page can be augmented with video clips, audio clips, relevant graphics and even links to related stories. Converged media sites can be a one-stop source for all aspects of a news story or event. National newspapers such as the New York Times and Washington Post have joined the trend, partnering with ABC and NBC respectively. ]
