RJI Futures Lab update #27

Looking forward with a Yahoo executive, and another well-funded news startup


In this week's Futures Lab update from the Reynolds Journalism Institute, hear about trends shaping news in the future from the vice president of news and finance for Yahoo, and learn about a startup aimed at providing news and information to "the change generation."

PART 1: Looking forward with Yahoo's VP of News and Finance

Rob Barrett, vice president of news and finance at Yahoo, gave a keynote presentation at the Reynolds Journalism Institute last week in which he outlined several trends likely to shape the media landscape over the next five years. RJI presents some of the highlights from his presentation, along with a studio interview in which Barrett talks about Yahoo's approach.

PART 2: Ozy Media

A news and information site called Ozy launched this week, hoping to distinguish itself from other news outlets by reporting on things "months before you hear it elsewhere." Learn more about Ozy from the site's founder, former MSNBC anchor Carlos Watson.
