I am a Hollywood fanatic. If there is anything that the people I know want to learn about Hollywood, they consider me to be the best living source for the information in town. I work as an entertainment news reporter, which makes things even better for me, as far as staying connected with my interests goes.
Over the years, there has been a considerable shift in the entertainment news industry. Earlier, print media was the most important tool for publishing and distributing latest entertainment news and Hollywood movie news to the public. This was seconded by the television, and radio followed. Entertainment websites and the internet were nowhere to be seen.
However, with time, the scenario has changed. Today, the online websites featuring latest entertainment news have become extremely popular. However, most entertainment news followers and old time Hollywood fanatics like me still turn to magazines and newspapers. Television still stands where it was earlier, though some experts believe that its popularity has somewhat waned. However, the internet offers to be a much better option in most cases, and there are a good number of reasons for this.
As a news reporter, I used to write mainly for a few magazines and Hollywood tabloids. My articles have often been published in newspapers as well. However, these days I mostly write for a couple of very popular websites dealing with the latest entertainment news. I have noticed a significant difference in the way things work these days, and believe that it is one of the chief reasons why websites featuring Hollywood movie news are becoming more and more popular.
Earlier I had to concentrate on creating articles based on the news and information I have gathered on the industry, with the primary objective of making the information interesting to read, adding an extra layer of spice, to attract more attention. This took time before it was finally published. Often a small piece of information would be stretched, just to help readers engage themselves for a longer time in doing something they liked.
Today, it is all about presenting authentic facts real time. The more recent the news I publish on the internet, the better it sells. Everybody is running out of time, and readers have very little time to go through bigger articles. All they want is to browse through headlines, and then decide on checking out the details, only if the headlines interest them. Today, the challenge is to get hold of the latest news before your competitors are able to, and publish such news online. This in turn lets your readers browse through fresh incidents in Hollywood before another website does the same.
Therefore, online news not only promises to be fresh, but it is generally very authentic, as long as you are following a good news portal featuring entertainment news. Moreover, online news is freely available to readers, letting websites score over news magazines and print media. I feel that it is because of these reasons, that latest entertainment news websites have gained a higher popularity today, and is quickly becoming the top source of Hollywood movie news.
