The datafication of journalism creates new demands on journalists. The set of skills and the daily work in the newsroom have changed the profession where traditional values might still be present but are challenged by how data is received, constructed and analyzed. This impacts how journalism is being produced; data contributes to the reporting and provides opportunities on how to conduct research and present the material; and simultaneously data also generates new ways of developing business models for the media industry. In the professional shift that is juxtaposed with the digital transition, this development creates new editorial positions that have led to a re-design of the actual newsrooms, where time pressure often is present and general knowledge about the set of digitals skills are required. In this chapter, the author builds on his observations as a journalist and journalism teacher, to explore and examine what the datafication of journalism means for the individual journalist who executes the digital transition in the newsroom.
