The Effect Of Technology On Those Who Package And Distribute The News Villanova University Executive MBA Program March 15, 2008

Media Content Distributors Face An Ever-Changing Landscape •  The “news” was historically distributed via a limited number of outlets •  Technological advancements have drastically changed this landscape •  Traditional content distributors (networks, newspapers, etc.) must embrace new technology to stay relevant R5 examines the effect of these changes from the perspective of those who “create” the news

Agenda •  Situation analysis –  Historical media trends –  New media trends –  Advertising revenue trends •  Definition of Key Issues •  Strategies & Tactics –  Emerging business models –  Case study

Timeline Internet Internet is “Traditional” becomes Supplemental media Integrated 1950’s - 1995 2001 - 2007 1995 - 2000 •  TV, radio, print •  dot-com crash •  Internet boom •  Advertising is •  eCommerce begins predictable begins •  Lots of VC •  Smarter use of funding technology to •  Build it and drive business they will come •  Broadband •  Test, learn, tear connectivity down, rebuild •  Digital generation How has this affected media companies?

Historically, Media Distribution Was Limited To Only A Few Outlets •  Primarily broadcast media –  Radio –  Television – the evening news –  Newspapers – one daily paper –  Magazines – Saturday Evening Post –  Cinema Reels

How Has Technology Changed The Game? •  Proliferation of broadband and the Internet (Web 1.0) –  24 x 7 cable (CNN was first big player) and hence 24 x 7 news cycle –  Hundreds of channels (TV & radio) – niche players everywhere for every demographic –  Internet, cable and satellite television, satellite radio, wireless technologies –  More choices in content sources and format, but still uni-directional from provider to consumer

Internet Allows For Content Aggregation… •  With Web 2.0, users can package and present personalized content •  RSS/XML feeds of news/events •  XML feeds of audio/video podcasts •  Portals such as iGoogle, My Yahoo, iTunes/iPod allow easy collection and presentation •  Space and Time-shifting of content This makes for highly targeted and impactful advertising possibilities

…And More Collaboration •  User generated content vs institutional created content •  Users interact with content – give them a “voice” •  Citizen journalism (camera phones) •  Blogs (Twitter) •  Social bookmarking •  You Tube •  My Space / Facebook •  Mobile devices enable real-time use of these technologies

Ubiquitous Connectivity •  Huge broadband penetration, WiFi everywhere and emerging 3G networks •  52.6% of US households and nearly all corporations have high speed access •  Almost all consumers are mobile •  Smart phones •  Blackberries Source: Leichtman Research Group October 2007

Constant Connectivity + Internet = More “Trusted News Sources” •  National and International sources for news in addition to local sources •  Plethora of niche focus sources for content traditionally available locally •  Globalizes news, jobs, real estate, classifieds, personals, weather •  Advertising revenue will continue to decentralize with the wide availability of information

The Line Between News And Entertainment Has Blurred •  Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Howard Stern •  Blending/Blogs by authoritative data sources –  Henry Blodget –  Walt Mossberg –  John Paczkowski –  David Pogue –  James Fallows “Don’t Trust Anyone Over 30…”

Changes In Consumption Have Had A Significant Affect On How Dollars Flow •  “Networked generation” spends around 3 hrs online per/day –  70% use some form of social networking site •  MySpace, Facebook, Bebo •  Significant reduction in traditional media use since 2005 –  Television down ~17% –  National newspaper down ~14% Source: Business Insights Ltd. Management Report 2007

Advertising Changes Are On The Horizon •  62% of marketers believe TV advertising has become less effective •  87% plan to increase online ad spending •  Many say they will cut their TV ad buys substantially when Digital Video Recorder penetration tops 50% TV advertising is NOT personal, but fire and forget Source: Association of National Advertisers and Forrester Research

What are the key issues? Media Companies •  New technology forces rapid changes in how consumers want information packaged and delivered •  Highly fragmented and competitive content-delivery business will continue to challenge loyalty and viewership Both of these will change the way media companies make money

Content Distribution Challenges •  The content distributor faces many key questions: –  How do you remain a relevant and trusted source of information? –  How do you keep users coming back? –  Do you have the technology systems in place to allow distribution of content to multiple formats and platforms? Are they efficient across multiple platforms? –  Do you give your users the ability to personalize and customize their experience with you? –  How do you evolve with technology changes? –  How do you make money?

Objectives…there are only 2 1.  Stay relevant 2.  Stay in business…and grow

Strategies •  Externally, continuously assess consumer awareness and use of new technologies to determine trends and preferences •  Internally, rapidly identify and assess new and emerging technologies to determine viability for media distribution and packaging

What Can Help Make it Happen? •  Leverage technology solutions to: –  Understand your user / audience –  Target them in terms of content and distribution –  Allow your users to interact –  Integrate efforts so that distribution to multiple platforms and technologies is economical –  Set-up systems and metrics to monitor and integrate technology trends –  Pilot new and innovative ways to generate revenue based on personalization and customization

Content Distribution – Examples of How It Has Evolved •  Newspapers –  Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, NY Times •  Started as print distribution •  Evolved to integrated online services, some subscription based •  Offer aggregation, collaboration, and connectivity on multiple platforms •  Television, Cable, Satellite Broadcasters –  ABC, NBC, Fox, CBS, PBS, CNN •  Traditional over the air distribution •  Evolved to integrated online platforms where content presented in multiple platforms for multiple mediums •  Video On Demand, IPTV, Internet video streaming

Content Distribution Examples •  Radio Broadcasters –  Clear Channel, Citadel, NPR affiliates, “Mom and Pop” •  Started as over the air radio stations •  Evolving to integrated online platforms where content is presented in multiple platforms for multiple mediums •  Internet radio, iTunes integration •, iLike •  Evolution key to long term viability –  Mergers, acquisitions, downsizing –  Ad revenue We’re still in an evolutionary phase – this requires balance!

Contrasting The Transition Of The Business Models Now •  Subscription-based services •  Advertising-supported services Emerging •  Personalization & customization •  Understanding the new platforms Disconnect between new media platforms and advertising dollars spent

Evolution Is Not Complete For example, NY Times print vs. on-line

Case Study •  WITF, Inc –  Public broadcaster with television, radio, magazine, and web content distribution mediums –  Underwriting move from unidirectional broadcast mediums (TV/Radio) to web –  Called for restructuring of functional silos to support content distribution workflows in new technology realm –  Still rapidly changing and evolving – the challenge is staying relevant on all platforms with global competition –  New initiatives –  NPR/PBS recognize media usage trends and are also trying to stay relevant as individual entities and through local affiliates

So What Should Media Companies Do? •  Ad focus – mass  niche •  Go where the audience is (virtual worlds, gaming, social & mobile networks) •  Two-way interaction •  Target areas where you can be the best Efficiently leverage technologies to drive this both internally & externally


Conclusions •  In new media world, personalization & customization is key for content distributor and advertiser •  Traditional media can remain relevant by placing greater focus on Customer Relationship Management •  Meet users on the platforms they expect on their schedule •  Constantly maintaining trust, once broken, almost irrevocably lost •  Leverage technology to enable new business models and optimize existing ones
