Media between the past and the present

In a quick comparison between the past and the present, there is a rapid and sharp change in light of the change in work methods and media technology. In the past, we used to listen to distinguished broadcasters through the voice, who were the stars of Egyptian and Arabic radio, so the audio media was the master in the sixties until the mid-seventies until the advent of television in form Akbar. There were media in Egyptian, Arab, and international television media. The media then was limited to radio, television, and paper newspapers.

Many models influenced media life and were influential despite their reliance on personal ability, talent, and self-culture. Sometimes little help came from others, but it depended mainly on personal charisma and the public's acceptance of media issues or press opinion articles. It is said that this is a distinguished journalist. Or not, the judgment of the audience or the critics was sometimes the only way to evaluate media professionals in the past, and the examples are many, for example, but not limited to the giants Tariq Habib and Samir Sabry and in commenting on the matches, Captain Muhammad Latif and Hamada Imam and others such as Najwa Ibrahim, Faryal Saleh, Salma Al-Shamaa, Suhair Shalaby, and Ahmed Samir.

And on international television in France, the famous broadcaster Michel Druker, who appeared in French children's programs, began appearing with stars such as Enrico Macys, Claude Francois, and others.

And in the giant American television, Oprah Winfrey, but in the present, the methods of work have changed, so preparing for programs or newscasts has become a challenging and accurate work or creativity, thinking and presentation is just an external form that depends on charisma, personal talent, and acceptance. There are talented people in the Arab media, for example, such as the Lebanese professor Rima Maktabi, director Al-Arabiya channel office in London, so the news broadcaster, if he was a journalist originally, means a diversity of talents and the ability to talk in a foreign language, so the word "media" is a big word that means pluralism between journalism and media, or working as a press reporter as well. Variety programs, which she worked on before on Al-Mehwar and Sada Al-Balad channels, and wrote press articles for some newspapers.

At the end of my speech, I say it honestly: the real journalist does not change over the ages since honesty, talent, acceptance, culture, and language ​​are among the most important distinguishing features.

As for the fundamental change that has taken place, it is the end of the era of expensive paper newspapers and the transformation of the press in particular and the media in general into electronic via mobile phones.
