Yahoo cuts some broadcast services

      No Comments on Yahoo cuts some broadcast services

CNet:

"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.
