CNN SVP on the Future of News: “Everything Needs to be Deconstructed”

The Miami Herald’s Glenn Garvin is covering the We Media conference at the University of Miami this week. Much of the focus of the three-day seminar has been on how news organizations and individual journalists are using new media and social networking tools for mere survival.

“It tells you something about the far-reaching tentacles of Twitter and Facebook and the other social-networking sites,” says CNN DC SVP David Bohrman. “And it tells you something about some of the challenges facing TV news.”

Amid the daily obituaries for the newspaper business, where bankruptcies and layoffs have become a grim daily routine, there’s been comparatively little notice that television news confronts many of the same problems: declining audiences, aging demographics, fierce competition from new digital media and a broken business model.

“Everything needs to be deconstructed,” Bohrman says. “Everything is going to be changing.”
