For our first Naked Media show, NYU journalism professor, PressThink blogger and media experimenter Jay Rosen eloquently addressed the need for someone to foot the bill for the journalism . “We’re in between business models,” he said. He held up Talking Points Memo, which he said is profitable, as a model to follow. He broke the news that New York University is launching a new program, in Fall of ’09, that mingles innovation with journalism, perhaps in a business or tech way. And he explained why he thinks New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger may not be up to the task of leading the Grey Lady into the new era.
Hosted by award-winning journalist and media veteran Dorian Benkoil, Naked Media is a monthly live webcast that cuts through the bloviation, challenges the conventional wisdom and gets at real issues. Whether in one-on-one interviews or panel discussions, Naked Media explores a wealth of issues, from making money using the latest ad technologies to the privacy issues surrounding behavioral targeting.
