The Chicago Sun-Times announced changes to its leadership and reorganizing of its newsroom recently.
This quote caught my eye:
“We are no longer a newspaper company,” Sun-Times Media Holdings LLC Editor-in-chief Jim Kirk said in a memo to staff. “We are a technology company that happens to publish a newspaper. We deliver content. And we will deliver content on many platforms and in ways that we haven’t yet fully considered.”
Or maybe to reword it for many readers of this blog: “I am a cartoonist that happens to appear in newspapers*. I deliver content. And I will deliver content on many platforms and in ways that I haven’t yet fully considered.”
* or graphic novels, comic books, magazines, ebooks, children’s books, or the web.
It’s an exciting time.
