Local TV can try to pick news audience on web

“Newspapers across the country are failing.  One by one, they’ll be forced to reinvent themselves on the web, either with current owners or new ones, with less original content,” says Cory Bergman at LostRemote, a site that covers predominantly TV. “And this reinvention process will be painful, presenting a short window of opportunity for TV sites to make a push to surpass newspaper sites to become your market’s top local news site in audience.  It doesn’t require a Google-sized team, but it will call for a small additional investment in very difficult economic times.”

Cory, by the way, is the founder and editor of Lost Remote as well as the director of business development for msnbc.com.

    Only in America. In Britain, not only is there no local TV worth the name left, but commercial radio is deeply fucked.
