According to Ms. Ha, digitization currently evaluates a significant impact on communication channels.

However, audiences now can receive the most updated information from many sources as social media, websites, forums, and other digital platforms.

Traditional platforms are digitalized

“This is a challenge and also an opportunity for broadcasters. As a positive sight, traditional channels with professional reputation always affirm their credibility meanwhile the explosion of digitization brings much unreliable information to audiences. There is a plus there is a minus, we have to extend knowledge and catch up with the most updated innovation.” said Ms. Ha. Nowadays, it is easy to recognize the development of traditional television stations in digital platforms such as Facebook, Tiktok, and Youtube by daily scrolling news feed.

According to the digitization and innovation of the Information Technology industry, Media’s recruitment process is also being undoubtedly influenced.
