The Changing Face of News Reporting – Challenges & Rewards

3:35-4:35 pm   Panel : Profitability- A far away Dream?
    News broadcasting has never been able to spin profits for the investors. And because the monies are bleeding content is suffering. News gathering, especially from international markets is literally non-existent. The most cost effective way being daily panel discussions. What can attract investment in a news broadcast for the growth of news as opposed to ownership through corporate and political influences? How much of an effect does this investment have on the News Broadcasting? Should the ‘Ownership’ entitle a say in the daily functioning of the channel? Will this ‘change of ownership’ prove to be the biggest Asset or the biggest loss the industry has seen?
Key Points  
  • Monetization
  • Content
  • How much of Influence is ‘Good’ influence
  • Ownership only till boardroom or the News Room
