First, we would never expect journalists to report for both television and radio when circumstances are difficult and dangerous. We send people to cover for both. So radio does not become 'second-rate'.
Nor has the quality of radio or television suffered through the use of bi-media journalism on the many occasions it has been employed - quite the reverse. Most correspondents enjoy reporting for both outlets, and their contributions for both television and radio have been widely praised.
