Envisioning Information Delivery for the Future
Dr. Frank Groom, Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana
As various forms of journalism are being changed by new technologies and communication platforms, investors such as Gannett  have stepped in to utilize current technologies in order to centralize content, shrink costs to a minimum, and where possible, stream content delivery over the Internet.
It may be too late to fix the major components of local, regional, national, and global information delivery as they have been fragmented to a point of no return. However, it is time to start a new process— envisioning and then implementing information delivery for the future. As an added benefit, this may enhance entertainment delivery methods, which coincides with news delivery.
