Publisher sees nothing but upside in digital era
“This is like a Gutenberg moment. We’re reinventing storytelling on a digital platform. Suddenly, we can use every form of storytelling in one place — pictures, graphics, words. If we need an interactive map, show me the map. If it’s a plane crash, show me the video. We see a new art form that’s going to be a much more dominant form of storytelling. That’s the exciting part for me.”
The quote is from Larry Kramer, former senior editor at The Washington Post, who just became publisher and president of USA Today. Kramer, a multi-millionaire, is taking over a financially-troubled USA Today but he sees nothing but upside.
