Abstract

The Corona Virus Disease-19 (Covid-19) pandemic has changed the practice of news coverage in journalism. The reason is that Covid-19 is easily spread and transmitted through the air. Journalists are faced with the dilemma of covering the news and the risk of contracting Covid. Mobile journalism, which refers to the practice of journalism based on reporters equipped with highly portable multimedia data collection equipment, has become an option in the preparation of journalism during a pandemic. This research was conducted on the practice of mobile journalism carried out by journalists in Indonesia. This study found a change in the practice of journalism in Indonesia during the pandemic. Mobile journalism, which in the pre-pandemic period had not been widely practiced, suddenly became a common phenomenon in the practice of journalism in Indonesia. For professional journalists in Indonesia, adaptation to mobile journalism and adherence to the journalistic code of ethics is a priority.
