Future of Journalism: Michael Caruso
Owner/Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Tube
Former Editor-in-Chief of Men's Journal, Details, and Los Angeles Magazine
I asked Mr. Caruso:
What do you tell young, aspiring journalists about the future of the business? Can you still be encouraging? What advice do you give them?
In good times, you have to have a passion for a profession. In bad times, that is true x 10. If you are very motivated and dedicated to journalism and storytelling, those will always be things you can pursue. There are all new, exciting ways to do that--from video games to social media to e-books to augmented reality and beyond. But it is more harrowing than ever to make a living at it.
