The way journalists select the news and the criteria they apply for judging whether a topic or event is newsworthy has been a constant area of focus in journalism studies since the second half of the twentieth century. In the twenty-first century however, the selection process of news is undergoing profound changes and the role of the audience in this evolution cannot be underestimated. Journalists have always been in an inner dialogue with their audience, but nowadays metrics measuring the audience’s response and interests influence editorial decisions. Moreover, audiences are allowed to propose topics and add content themselves. This introductory chapter gives an overview of the ways the role of the audience can be studied in connection with news values and explains the structure of this book.
