The way we are consuming news is changing. While the average age of viewers watching traditional broadcast news is more than 65 years, the younger audience is not interested in the time-honored setting of the evening news broadcast. Younger viewers want the ability to choose the stories that appeal to them, follow them in real time, and form their own opinions rather than listening to the conclusions of established anchors. Their rapidly changing expectations and habits require the media to be nimble and to continuously adapt. The technology platforms delivering the news are shifting from traditional media such as cable news to content viewed on computers, cell phones, and devices delivering over-the-top content.
