Weblogging Television Style
Does this sound familiar? Take the best content from 22 different information sources and re-package it into a separate product designed to simplify access. That is exactly what Gannett is doing with it's 22 local television stations. Gannet is launching a cable channel that will re-broadcast the local news of those 22 stations at particular times on one national cable channel. Who said blogging was not influential? OK, maybe blogging didn't completely inspire this decision but the similarities are very interesting.
