Abstract [en]

This paper explores how web TV productions and journalists’ use of social media change how journalistic formats are being ”done” in terms of both form and content. Illustrating our argument with examples from recent studies of web TV productions, journalistic digital guidelines, and industry interviews, we suggest that “backstage informality” is both a prominent audience orientation in online productions, as well as an overarching characteristic of web TV journalism. Web TV productions expose backstage settings and practices, and journalists construct sociable relations with audiences by performing as if being mates with audiences in talk and interaction. This creates an image of audiences’ accessing the real, unmediated personas of journalists, as well as the real conditions of journalistic productions. We see this orientation to backstage informality as part of the current development of trying to understand audiences’ preferences and expectations in online media contexts.
