What is needed to build a newsradar?
Contrary to what most people may think the hardest part of building an effective newsradar is the search and knowledge management skills required for the newsmaster to set it up. A newsmaster is a professional who is dedicated to the task of continuously improving and refining queries, sources and filters utilized to create a top quality newsradar on a specific theme or topic.
