As the news media are put through wrenching changes by the digital revolution, the future of the traditional journalism business has never been more uncertain. In reaction, Professor Gillmor says, the media ecosystem is growing more diverse, with innovators and entrepreneurs creating new ways of providing information and making those ventures economically sustainable.

Professor Gillmor is founding director of the Knight Center for Digital Media Entrepreneurship and Kauffman Professor of Digital Media Entrepreneurship at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, USA.
