Jan. 23, 2014, Toronto - Traditional newspaper outlets are throwing up paywalls, pouring
resources into digital, and increasing the amount of sponsored
content—all in an effort to find a sustainable business model for
journalism. The question is: What’s working? Canada’s top publishers Phillip Crawley, publisher of The Globe and Mail; John Cruickshank, publisher of the Toronto Star; Gerry Nott, senior vice-president of the eastern region, Postmedia Network; and André Pratte, editorial pages editor of La Presse, discussed revenue mixes and models in a shifting media landscape. Joshua Benton, director of the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard University, moderated this discussion.
