Podcast with the Publisher of the Wall Street Journal

Today, we are talking with Gordon Crovitz, Executive Vice President of Dow Jones and the publisher of the The Wall Street Journal about old and new media. He shares his insights on the future of newspapers in the digital world, the role of blogs and new media in spreading and shaping the news and how the WSJ is at the forefront of this transition.

Are you like the nice "troll" who always puts the first comment up on our podcasts with something positive? If so, thanks!

A good podcast. The WSJ seems certainly to have surpassed all other print outlets for getting the possibilities of the internet--it's not just about blogs, God bless 'em, and not just about selling ads, but also about selling the brand you already have.
Makes me think of physical-plant retailers who've moved seamlessly, seemingly, to internet sales as more than mere supplement.
Makes one wonder, also: has any newspaper in the last 100 years, besides the WSJ, really understood the marketplace, and that it might have to one day actually compete in it?

I dropped the print version of the Journal about 2 years ago in favor of the Online. I do miss just flipping through the pages, so I guess I'll give version 3.0 a try. I'm not giving up the online version though.
