Rivergate Boat Show debuts, IBEX on now, internet media leading growth
What a wonderful world is the online media landscape!
Just today, I have had more than a handful of people contact me about amending, tweaking, updating and adding to stories we are running on MarineBusiness-World.com and our other titles, including Sail-World and Powerboat-World. In a jiffy, this can be done and disseminated to readers (avid, all of them) around the world.
This week in the US, internet media employment has surpassed TV broadcasting, having passed magazines, radio and other traditional media six months ago. Only newspapers employ more, and they are in decline, according to AdAge.com
