AMONG ALL OF the seminars being tweeted about last Friday at the Online News Association Conference, there was one that rose to the top. Festooned with the hashtag #newsrevenue, it was a panel on revenue and ethics, called The Revenue Review: Memberships, Advertising, and Events, and attendees were clearly loving it:
And then this from Katie Hawkins-Gaar, a faculty member at Poynter: “The transparency in this#newsrevenuepanel is so refreshing. Everyone is furiously taking notes. Bravo to the panelists.#ONA15”
The panelists who were giving their audience such a thrill were three executives from digital native newsrooms: Mary Brown, publisher of Voice of San Diego, Evan Smith, editor in chief of Texas Tribune, and Joy Robins, SVP of Global Revenue and Strategy for Quartz. They were on a stage at ONA because they were doing what nearly every media organization, large and small, is pulling their hair to do: They were making money on the news.
