Hola a todos:

Alguien sabria cómo podria traducir esta frase del ámbito periodístico:
"I’ll Be Covering a Story on a Different Beat"?

    Tambien se usa en el campo de periodismo - basicamente significa lo mismo pero la ruta/territorio puede ser definido por materia en vez de solamente la geografia. O sea, "the beat" puede ser deportes, economia, etc...

    You are both right, and said what it occurred to me to say, when I read the header.

    A journalist´s beat is the same to him or her, as a policewoman´s is to her: the same area she covers day to day.

    And I would venture it has to do with the idea of "pounding the pavement", or trudging over the same sidewalk day after day.
