From reinsurance to journalism, it has been a pretty exciting career path for Brendan Greeley who has served as the Multimedia Editor of The Economist for two years and has moved into a new role now. In this podcast, Brendan talks passionately about the role of the journalist from the investigative journalism days in the 1970's to the 'information glut age' of the web. He gets candid about why News networks/channels are not able to figure out how to make money on the internet.
True to The Economist's style, he decodes jargons like 'Lean Back and Lean forward' in media publishing and shares his personal views on the future of journalism on the web.
