Is Television Dead?
Let's get something straight right away: the medium of "television," the means of telling stories and providing entertainment by way of pictures and sound, is not dead...never will be dead, and will in fact outlive us all. But the method in which we consume it...well now that is a different story.
I've had a dream, although it is a far-fetched one, to work at NBC one day. Specifically, at 30 Rockefeller in Manhattan. Earlier this year I typed up some sub plans in the basement of the building while traveling in New York, but that doesn't mean I am going to cross this goal off the bucket list just let.
However, the longer it takes me to accomplish this goal, the more I am becoming convinced that NBC as we know it will not be a thing in about 15-20 years...especially after reading this article from Advertising Age magazine:
Read the article and then come back here and tell me what you think. Is NBC (along with CBS, ABC and FOX) dead as we know them? Or is Ms. Palmer blowing things out of proportion?
