A journalist is a person who collects, writes, or distributes news or other current information to the public. A journalist's work is called journalism.

A journalist can work with general issues or specialize in certain issues. However, most journalists tend to specialize, and by cooperating with other journalists, produce journals that span many topics.  (Source)
