The Future of Media: AI, Niche Companies, and Non-Media Brands
The Contrarian Marketing Podcast, episode 20
This episode is available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
In this episode of Contrarian Marketing, we discuss the current state of media based on the near-bankruptcy of Vice and the shutdown of BuzzFeed News.
We think smaller, niche media companies can provide content that larger media companies cannot fulfill, and non-media companies like retailers can fund media teams to fill the gap.
We predict that AI will play a significant role in the future of media, for example, in gathering and distributing news and sports coverage.
We also announced plans to create a highly curated Slack group for solopreneurs to share experiences and help each other navigate the challenges of running a business. Apply!
