USA TODAY, THE LAST BIG IDEA COULD BE THE NEXT BIG ONE

Files under General | Aug 30th

Al Neuharth was right.

United States business travelers need a Monday to Friday national newspaper.

So he founded in 1982 USA Today.

The Last Big Idea in the USA newspaper market.

A brilliant idea.

A newspaper that includes the only national sports paper of the country.

An edited quality newspaper for readers with limited time to read.

Full color.

“The only European style newspaper with short pagination published in the USA”, as I said many years ago.

Now they bad news:

They are cutting 10% of the staff.

It seems to me that the current staff number (1,300 people) shows that USA Today is not anymore the lean newspaper that started with the smart loaning program sharing resources from the Gannett chain.

It was a newspaper for a mobile audience.

So this is the newspaper of the future.

The Next Big Idea is a mobile newspaper for a mobile audience that mix international, national and hyper-local content.

As the founder of Williams-Sonoma likes to say:

“We don’t need to change. We need to do it better”.

IN MEMORIAN OF CARLOS MENDO, A GREAT JOURNALIST

Files under General | Aug 23rd

2010-08-23_1953

A few years ago I wrote a very short post after reading a brilliant analysis of Carlos Mendo about the US elections.

Today I saw that my blog-meter started to get hundreds of visits linking to this post from Google.

2010-08-23_1943

I went to Google and I put just his name in…

And the explanation of so much traffic was there: Carlos Mendo died today and many people were looking for more information about this master of journalists.

Mendo was UPI director in Spain and director of EFE, working also for ABC and El Pais.

Carlos Soria and Esteban Morán were old friends of him.

I am sure that they are very sad.

Like many readers fans of such a great journalist.

He was a gentleman, a happy person with many friends and a terrific expert on US politics.

As we say in Spain, he was “un clásico”.

He was 77.

Rest in pace.
