Tom Foremski stirs the pot
Tom Foremski, formerly of Financial Times fame and now champion of Silicon Valley Watcher has been letting people know for some time that he feels the PR industry is about to go through a real shake up as traditional media outlets die and blogs and podcasts fill the void. On January 12th he wrote a piece entitled" "Disruption in mainstream media but where is the disruption in the mainstream PR industry?. . .it's coming." Word has it PR Week followed up on that piece and has interviewed him with a view to producing a profile on the man. I'm encouraged to hear this as it shows PR Week is thinking about the very real challenge our industry faces with the rapid decline in traditional media.
