in conversation with

MICHAEL ENRIGHT
Host
CBC Radio One's The Sunday Edition

 

It's clear that between evaporating business models and dispersing audiences that legacy media is on the run. Would it be better to blow it all up and start over or can the dinosaurs dance to a new soundtrack? David Carr, business columnist and culture reporter for The New York Times, examines the value of traditional media in a very cluttered, confusing age. In conversation with Michael Enright, host of CBC Radio One's The Sunday Edition.
