Steinberg, former president and COO of BuzzFeed, joined the DailyMail last June. In this interview he talks about the publisher's recent Digital Content NewFront, the growth of video on the site and how it is monetizing video on Facebook and YouTube.
Can print magazines survive, thrive and surprise, what with all the existing online, digital and mobile fare? Absolutely, say media industry experts, adding that those who have declared magazines' demise are off-track.
For politicians, the message is clear: making the rounds on the Sunday morning news programs is no longer good enough. The lesson is no less clear for advertisers who rely on the same eyeballs. The advertising industry should take this as a sign that online video is a worthy investment.
It's often said in the digital world that "content is king." It is clear that in journalism, good stories (even at considerable lengths) still rule, whether in books, newspapers, magazine, web-based publications, podcasts, or on innovative digital narrative platforms.
Overall, there is still a requirement for traditional journalism and original reporting because all three of these websites report the news but don't do a lot of the original fact finding and investigation like traditional media sources do.
