Vox Media, the owner of news and lifestyle websites like SB Nation and Eater, is laying off about 50 employees, a sign that Facebook’s recent algorithm changes are forcing publishers to shift strategies. The cuts were confined mostly to workers who produce social media video for Vox’s Media’s fashion site, Racked; Curbed, which focuses on real estate; and sports-oriented SB Nation
Christy Tanner will explain how CBSN, CBS News’ streaming video news service launched in 2014, is creating new value for viewers, advertisers and CBS Corp. She will keynote the NAB Show’s Online Video Program on April 10.
For three years, CBSN has been trying to prove that 24/7 news channels don’t have to come from cable. And its viewership on streaming platforms, computers and phones shows it’s strategy is working.
Webcasters promise transparency, but not all views deserve equal time.
CBS will be courting digital viewers by re-airing CBS Evening News with Jeff Glor, on its streaming channel CBSN at 7 p.m. Pacific time after it airs on the network’s TV affiliates across the country. The anchor will also do newsmaker interviews and his program will produce reports that will air everyday on CBSN, whether they make it onto his 30 minute broadcast or not.
Jeff Glor takes over as the broadcast’s anchor replacing Scott Pelley, who was shown the door — or, rather, sent back across the street to 60 Minutes — after six years this past spring. The network also announced Friday that the evening news will be replayed each night at 10 on the CBSN streaming service, an additional viewing opportunity for people who aren’t around a television set at dinnertime.
