The vocabulary is changing and becoming more loaded. Print and TV journalists are now called legacy media. As opposed to being part of the expanding digital dawn.
New digital properties emerged over the last year and claimed mind space. Indian start-ups of international media sites such as Quartz, Scroll and The Huffington Post, India Today’s DailyO.in, Raghav Bahl’s new venture Quitillion Media, and at one end of the conceptual spectrum, P. Sainath’s People’s Archive of Rural India. Other ventures helmed by legacy media journalists who are out of jobs will see the light of day this year if the funding comes their way.
