    Abstract:
    Although the technological convergence of mobile "phones" and multimedia began in the 1990s, it was not until the commercial launch of touchscreen-enabled mobile devices with flat-rate mobile internet subscriptions that widespread production and consumption of news-related content and services began to flourish. Mobile news consumption has gained momentum in the public's daily lives. Simultaneously, traditional news organizations have expanded their news offerings in recent years by reusing or customizing journalistic material provided for mobile websites and/or apps. This article discusses and synthesizes the results of modern literature on the intersection of journalism and mobile media to examine the generation of mobile news. It proposes a paradigm of journalism that emphasizes the roles of people and technology in customizing or repurposing activities. Additionally, the essay outlines a research agenda centered on the generation of mobile news.
