As a media newbie, it was challenging for bottom-rungers like me to keep up with industry news. The monthly magazine trades seemed stale and CEOs were miserly sharing industry gossip.
With print’s collapse and financial/ethical challenges plaguing broadcast and social media, it’s easy to overlook the thousands of innovators changing the industry daily. I keep pace through newsletters from NBC’s Dylan Byers, Recode’s Peter Kafka, Josh Sternberg’s The Media Nut and Simon Owens’ Tech & Media.
Owens most recently published deep dives on large and small outlets – including profiling the origins and future of The 100 Companies, The Agency 100’s publisher.
