Very interesting blogpost by Prof. George Miller at Temple’s Department of Journalism, who blogs at Entrepreneurial Journalists of Philadelphia. It’s about Greg Osberg, the new CEO and publisher of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News and philly.com.
Osberg was hired by the new ownership group, Credit Suisse and Angelo Gordon. He has big plans for the company, including:
• Launching a media incubator inside the Inquirer building, where small media companies can exist rent-free.
• Forming content partnerships with universities and niche websites.
• Restructuring the advertising sales teams so that ad reps sell print, online and apps at the same time.
