The Washington Post banks on ‘cord cutters’ with next-generation video programming

November 01, 2012

In Silicon Valley, a major focus at the moment is creating “mobile-first” products, as opposed to those designed for the Web or print and then retrofitted for mobile devices later. It’s with that philosophy that creation began for The Fold, the newest project out of The Washington Post Company’s WaPo Labs, according to Vijay Ravindran, chief digital officer for The Post. At its core, The Fold is a nightly newscast, broadcast at 6 p.m. from The Post newsroom. But it also diverges from most nightly newscasts and is more than just another video program or show.

How newspapers use front pages to market social media and mobile offerings

October 15, 2012

A newspaper’s front page is still one of its most important assets. On days when big news breaks, passers-by study above-the-fold headlines and photos as they decide whether to buy copies of the newspaper.

An Untapped Market: The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s beer app

November 28, 2011

Before 2009 Evan Benn was barely into beer. Then he came to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and, through a series of staffing switches, ended up the newspaper’s beer writer. In addition to a print column about the sudsy subject, Benn has a well-read Hip Hops blog, a Twitter account, a dedicated Facebook page and even a book chronicling St. Louis’s hefty beer scene. Then at the end of 2010, Benn decided it would be wise to expand his brand even further, to mobile.
