In her PhD thesis – „Exclusive TV Journalism,” Ms. De Vinca specifically objectified comprehensive knowledge – representing the quintessence of producing a TV exclusive – that hadn’t previously been exposed to the scientific community. The attempt to define the categories, detect the paths and the principles of exclusive television journalism, and finally the contemplative design of an entirely new model of making a TV exclusive – constituted the fundamental intent of the thesis.
