Newspapers: the End of Business as usual – ? or !

A wonderful conference this past week in Aspen of thought leaders in Journalism and News Media exploring future News Media business models. The assumption made at the conference was that the last metro newspaper has closed its doors in the US. What will the future of News Media look like if this happens? How will citizens get their news? What viable business models will emerge?

One of the areas the conference looked at specifically was HyperLocal. Click on the FOCAS 2009 menu at the right, and listen to the Models for HyperLocal Approaches session. Jeff Jarvis provides a very interesting synopsis of the overall framework in the intro Business Realities of Journalism session. Fascinating stuff.

BTW, the business models presented at this conference will prepared by the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, led in part by Jeff Jarvis. The specific data for the business models discussed can be found here.

Jarvis used a new tool called prezi as they basis for his presentation. Wow! is all I can say. Very cool.
