Digiday video: How CNN, Vox and Inquisitr are creating and monetizing video

Video is a big part of growth opportunities for publishers. At the recent Digiday Publishing Summit in Key Biscayne, Florida, we asked execs from CNN International, Vox and Inquisitr the role that video plays in their content and monetization strategies. Highlights:

  • Video is a huge focus at CNN, and figuring out how to monetize is a large part of what keeps execs up at night.
  • At Horoscopes.com, which used to be more text-focused, the last few years has meant more of a pivot towards video, and delivering some of that content in that format is a priority.
  • Web video and storytelling via video is a focus at Vox Media, which has seen growth for video at both SBNation and at Vox. The company is also taking web video and turning it into new content in other formats, including podcasts and on Netflix.
