“TV news began as public service programming that broadcasters had to carry as a condition of getting a license from the FCC. The television news business eventually turned profitable, but it will soon face an existential crisis as to how to remain so… One possibility is to create a large bundle of national and local news, made available through a single packager… Another possibility would be to find a more Switzerland-like player to act as a neutral distributor… Certain companies may be able to go it alone better than others. Comcast and NBCUniversal have a broad array of assets including CNBC… Fox is putting a lot of shoulder behind Fox Nation… Right now, there is no obvious answer to saving TV news as pay-TV subscribership declines, but let’s not allow quality television news to become collateral damage in the entertainment streaming wars.”
– Tom Rogers, the first NBC Cable president, in a CNBC op-ed on supporting news in a streaming world
