In the field of information and news broadcasting, the arrival and spread of social media and the variety of media platforms in the contemporary world has greatly reduced the audience’s dependency on national broadcasting for obtaining information and news. The present study examines how media convergence is among the most essential media strategies for broadcasting organizations (e.g. the “IRINN”) to adapt to the contemporary circumstances of the technology market and the needs of the audience. The present research has employed a qualitative method to conduct content analysis based on the in-depth interview tool and taking samples from three distinct statistical populations including the “IRIB” organization's managers and authorities, university professors, and active professionals in the field of media, and findings were coded and analyzed using the MAXQDA qualitative analysis software. Five main strategies were identified by analyzing the codes extracted from this study to help the news channel take advantage of media convergence potentials, including 1. Convergence in tools and media ownership, 2. Teaching and institutionalizing the culture of convergence, 3. Convergence in presenting the news to the audience, 4. Tactical convergence with other media environments, and 5. Structural convergence. Eventually, the execution approaches of each strategy were evaluated and analyzed.
