Abstract

This study examines how major U.S. media companies are developing their digital strategies in the context of earlier work on convergence. Through rare interviews with media leaders and other sources, the ways that media corporations have coped with digital innovation following the dot-com crash are explored, including its delivery and the styles of leadership. The authors posit that media firms fall into three categories: leaders, learners and laggards.
