As traditional media strive to assert their place in the new media conversation and maintain a position of influence, they’re struggling to reinvent their business and distribution models to keep pace with today’s “instant communication” channels. Will traditional media succeed in maintaining relevance amid the chaos of the new-media revolution? And what will emerge in the new-media 2.0 model?
