Finally, some good news.
We have taken up much space on this blog pointing out media outlets trying to do the impossible – “more with less.” So, it’s about time somebody decided that they actually need more staff to cover more news.
CNN announced today they plan to boost their staff off correspondents by 10 percent – adding 15-16 positions, spending millions of dollars to “generate original news content.”
CNN plans to beef up its staff at bureaus around the world, effective early next year. Hopefully, they will also give their new correspondents the resources they need as well.
As we say at Tanner Friedman, “Content is King.” Finally, a major organization is appropriately showing respect for royalty.
