Funding Journalism in the Digital Age: Business Models, Strategies, Issues and Trends
By Jeff Kaye & Stephen Quinn

The news media play a vital role in keeping the public informed and maintaining democratic processes. But that essential function has come under threat as emerging technologies and changing social trends, sped up by global eco- nomic turmoil, have disrupted traditional business models and practices, creating a financial crisis. Quality journalism is expensive to produce-so how will it survive as current sources of revenue shrink? Funding Journalism in the Digital Age not only explores the current challenges, but also pro- vides a comprehensive look at business models and strategies that could sustain the news indus- try as it makes the transition from print and broadcast distribution to primarily digital plat- forms. The authors bring widespread international journalism experience to provide a global per- spective on how news organizations are evolving, investigating innovative commercial projects in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Norway, South Korea, Singapore and elsewhere.
