With the rapid growth of online and new media, many have been predicting the fall of traditional media.
But the media giants of the past continue to be the media giants of today and in fact many are doing better than ever.
CBS, Disney, News Corp, and Comcast, among others, are at or near all-time high stock prices, their financials are looking good, and their growth prospects are strong.
On the other hand, technology platforms like Apple, Facebook, Google, and Netflix are trading far below their peak stock prices and financials and growth prospects are not as strong as they once were.
This confounds the notion that traditional media is weakening as the technology platforms rise.
Business Insider deputy editor Nicholas Carlson explores the topic of what tech companies can learn from traditional media companies in a discussion with Ross Levinsohn, investor and former CEO of Yahoo, and Jon Miller, investor and former CEO AOL, at our media conference IGNITION last week.
