Q. A career advice: Do you think it will help if mediapersons of today (and tomorrow) are also well-versed in law (given the possibility of having to defend oneself) and statistics (given measurement science etc)?


A. Horizontality of knowledge in today’s gig economy is very critical for any eventuality of pivoting requirement. So it’s not about the discipline one develops expertise in. The moot point is what kind of skill would be relevant for improving both capability and copability. If law and statistics serve that purpose, let that be the case. Incidentally, both the disciplines mentioned by you are also relevant for media , depending on the role expected by an organisation from the candidate.
