Charlie Martin on the future of television news:
We’re only a few years – two to five is my guess – before the networks are in the same position as newspapers and magazines are today: their expensive, capital-intensive business model on the brink of destruction.
That sounds about right. When blogs started, I thought the newspapers would be pretty safe until 2015 or so — but habits (and business models) can change very quickly, indeed, as we’re seeing happen right now to Tribune Co., Gannett/USA Today, the New York Times, etc.
Look out, CNN — we’re coming after you next.
