More than 40 leaders from publishing, advertising, media and technology will examine the most promising content business models

Demand for news is growing, but media companies are scrambling to figure out how to meet that demand in a sustainable way.At paidContent Live we’ll look at advertising, sponsored content, paywalls, user-generated content and everything in between.

At GigaOM’s annual paidContent Live conference, being held April 17 in New York City, innovators redefining the media industry will reveal the best emerging business models. Leaders in publishing, advertising, media and technology will explain how they are making content work in an industry that has long relied on precarious revenue sources.

At a time when media models are hotly debated, there are signs of hope that media companies can regain their financial footing. But there is also widespread disagreement on how to get there. In a recent article, GigaOM’s Mathew Ingram examined how sponsored content affects traditional news media when the lines between the two are blurred. That is just one of the issues to be discussed at paidContent Live.
