A marketing maven e-mails in from a Future of PR conference, where he's listening to Andrew Baron, the producer of online news show Rocketboom avoid mentioning his former host, the famously pretty Amanda Congdon, who quit this year, sparking an embarrassing public feud with Andrew. (The two have threatened each other with legal action over Amanda's disputed share of 49% of the show. Meanwhile, the chattering class has wondered which would suffer more from the breakup.)
I'm sitting in front of Andrew Baron...he's the keynoter for this. He was asked by Chas Edwards of Federated Media.... "Since Amanda has left.. have you seen any change in the audience?"
He hemmed and hawwed and said it's grown a bit and now people are coming back for the content and a "sense of integrity" (whatever that means). I guess that's sort of like "people read it now for the articles..."
