I’ve hit the big time!

OK, not really, but the New York Times has an article in yesterday’s online edition called “This time, the revolution will be televised,” that reads an awful lot like my “The future (will|will not) be televised” post from last month. If I were paranoid or egotistical, I might think that the Times was ripping me off. Good thing I’m neither of those.

Howard Stern is the future of media. God help us…

Good article on the Dallas-Fort Worth Star-Telegram today about satellite radio and its broader implications for radio in general. They do a pretty solid job of explaining the rules of engagement here as media struggles with consumers’ increasing variety of choice in how they consume content. One notable absence in the article is its avoidance of print media’s struggles with the Internet as a source of information, which fundamentally is the same issue described with regard to satellite/cable vs. broadcast media. The most interesting comment came from NAB spokesman Dennis Wharton, who “…points out that ‘localism’ — giving listeners news, weather and sports that relates to their community — remains the province of broadcast radio. ‘That’s our franchise and ours alone,’ he says.” I know of some bloggers who might disagree. As they say on radio… stay tuned.

According to Digg, “Tomorrow, Friday Jan 6, Google Inc. will announce that it will let consumers buy video over the Internet from CBS, the NBA and other providers, becoming the latest company to explore the new method of distributing TV content.” What no one seems to get is that we’ve already had the first hit television program on the ‘net. The problem is that no one thinks to identify it as a tv show. Remember JibJab? The big question is when we’ll have the first hit online series.
