The chapter offers a theoretical overview and understanding on issues regarding the way technological disruption transforms old habits and practices in newsrooms leading to innovative storytelling that transcends time and space. The emergence of social media as a main news source, the extensive use of mobile platforms and the advent of complex technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI) are paving the way for new forms of journalism that are shaping the future of the industry. In this context, this chapter defines and adequately describes the term digital media while, at the same time it sheds light on new forms of journalism that arise from the vast outspread of ‘smart technology' such as conversational journalism, data journalism, drone journalism, network journalism, robot journalism, selfie journalism, slow journalism, and virtual reality journalism.
