What Is The Future Of News?

Salon CEO Richard Gingras


Salon Media Group Chief Executive Officer Richard Gingras has been with the company since it started in 1995, making it the oldest “new media” company on the face of the planet. Salon, old media companies and new media companies are all facing the same problem/opportunity. New ways for people to get news such as Facebook and Twitter are disrupting the revenue models for media. So how do you embrace that disruption? That was the focus of “The Future Of News” discussion at SoCap2010 in San Francisco.

Hanamura explains what Link TV is doing to take advantage of the changing media environment. Van Slyke explains how The Media Consortium helps many independent media organizations navigate the changing media scene.
