The End of Imus

April 13, 2007

It was quite predictable–for reasons I mentioned in a post a couple of days ago. But now it is official. CBS is ending the Imus show.

What I find interesting from a crisis management perspective is this article from the New York Times called Flying Solo Past the Point of No Return.

It shows the grave danger of continuing to operate in the old paradigms, by the old rules. This story provides an excellent case study for crisis managers why there is so much more risk in these days of YouTube, blogs, social media, and a mainstream media desperate to find ways to attract and hold audiences and stay relevant.
