Successful implementation of IT innovations requires mutual adjustment of technical features and social practices and structures of an organization. In this paper, we develop a synthesized model for mediating organizational innovation, drawn from Roger?s  model for organizational diffusion of innovation and Orlikowski et al.?s  model for technology use mediation, to investigate the implementation of digital technologies in TV news. Our analysis of two case studies of TV news stations highlights the phases of mediation that occurred in these organizations and points to differences in mediation styles from previous studies. We suggest that scope of the implementation and temporal pressure in the work context were important dimensions in the mediation process.
