This is an interesting story on the major network news channels. Sounds like they’re seeing the paradigm shift that is occurring.
The money quote:
“There is an explosion in the number of news and quasi-news outlets and it goes into the Internet, it goes into broadband, streaming video, it’s now on cell phones … and those of us in network news have to recognize that,” Westin said. “Technology is making it possible that the audience wants us to come to them, instead of making them coming to us which is traditionally what network news has done.”
I think 2004 will be remembered as the year the shift accelerated.
