The Future of the News

Join me tomorrow, Monday 8th October, at 9am US Eastern Standard Time on WIOX Radio. My guest will be Julia Reischel of the Catskills' Watershed Post; we'll be discussing the past, present and future of the news.

Not to be lazy, but I'm copying this post from Wake Up To Frugality! Hot on the heels of the aforementioned, decidedly dodgy summer - most of my guests in August cancelled at the last minute - follows an October line-up that seems more promising.

October certainly started off with a whallop; this morning's show featured Dean Keim, political cartoonist whose work has graced the front cover of the New Yorker. In the last few years, he has turned his passion for music into a side business and has been working as a live music reviewer and photographer in New York City. See his work here.

He and I discussed the Economy of Music and the Music industry.

Next week, Julia Reischel of the Catskills' Watershed Post and I will discuss the state of the news. Today it was reported that New Orleans is now without a daily newspaper along with three titles in Alabama. The Times-Picayune will now focus its efforts on its online newspaper. If you haven't already, visit the Watershed Post to see the future of a superior digital news empire in its fledgling stages. I may be biased because I've written for the Watershed Post, but both the content and the navigation of the site are brilliantly crafted.
