The Publishing Industry

The Publishing Industry

Print is Far from Dead

Publishing has made some major pivoting with online content, but the overarching message in this episode is that publishing is certainly not dead but, on the contrary, is very alive and thriving. Andrew and Jessica bring two amazing guests, one of them being Gary Press, who used to be the publisher of the South Florida Business Journal and is the best guy to talk about specialty publications. Andrew also talks with Jeanne Straus, CEO of Straus News, a network of community newspapers in the Northeast. The amount of content that is out in the world today has increased dramatically and the valuation of the publishing industry shows three to six times SDE or four to seven times EBITDA, which are really strong valuations for any industry. Listen to this episode and find out why the publishing industry is a resilient one.
