Business Insider is known for its clicky mix of business and gossip content, delivered in the form of rapid-fire posts, slideshows and videos. In six years' time, Henry Blodget has put BI at the front in the traffic race with established brands like CNN Money and Forbes Digital.
The Huffington Post has been on a whirlwind of international expansion. Today, 40 percent of its audience comes from outside the U.S., and according to its namesake president and editor in chief, more than half of the world’s GDP has its own HuffPost.
Henry Blodget is more than optimistic about the current state of the media industry. In fact, the Business Insider CEO and editor in chief believes the rise of digital media has created a "golden age" for journalism.
Yahoo's acquisition of Tumblr has dominated the tech headlines this week, so it should come as no surprise that a panel of Web publishing luminaries discussing the future of media on Thursday weighed in on the portal's recent mega purchase.
Business Insider has become known all-too-well for making its site sticky with a constant procession of topical or newsy slideshows.
