Survey seeking solutions to burnout in journalism enters the homestretch


The Reynolds Journalism Institute’s (RJI) survey on burnout in the news industry, conducted in partnership with research firm SmithGeiger, has received more than 1,000 responses as it heads into the final weeks of the collection phase. Anyone interested in completing the survey has until Sunday, Nov. 26, to participate.

Randy Picht, the executive director of RJI, said the high turnout will mean more rigorous findings and overall optimal data to analyze.

“We’ve been hearing from folks about the burnout problem for a while and now, because of the survey, I’m hearing from more folks about potential solutions to the problem and that’s been very gratifying,” said Picht, noting that prior research suggests burnout has affected up to 70% of journalists.
