The Wider Image: News enthusiasts turn to TikTok to chart new paths in media
Lisa Remillard, 43, a journalist of 20 years who acts as a one-person newsroom for her 2.5 million TikTok followers, live streams for more than 2,000 people as she recounts the news of the day and answers questions from the viewers, at home in San Diego, California, U.S., April 24, 2023. Remillard hopes to parlay this growth into a new business model that could help independent journalists earn a living on TikTok and other social media platforms. "In my deepest, darkest hopes and dreams, I wish that could be the result of all this hard work," she said, expressing her hope for a new business model for independent journalists.
