This article explores the growing tendency for newspaper journalists in Israel to “moonlight” as lecturers on academic programs of communication and journalism studies. Drawing on materials from in-depth interviews, the paper suggests that two seemingly opposite trends are combining to create a new professional tendency. On the one hand, mainstream newspapers continue in sustained decline while, on the other hand, journalism studies as an academic and vocational program of education and professional training is blossoming in Israel. This paradoxically complementary tendency prompts more and more newspaper journalists to seek a second job as lecturers. The article illustrates this tendency, analyzes its origins, and considers its present and future consequences for Israeli journalism.
