"Yahoo said Tuesday that it is shutting down several broadcast services, including its financial news program FinanceVision and Yahoo Radio. [...] "FinanceVision was advertising-driven, and that model ceased to be enough to support (it)," Sohn said. "The proposition to provide video broadcasting was a very different proposition than hosting Web pages with text." [said Henry Sohn, Yahoo's vice president and general manager for network services]"
That’s sad to see a clever combination of video and web such as FinanceVision go under. I wonder whether they even considered turning it into a fee-based service.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
