Looking For A Media Job? Thomson Reuters Might Just Be The Place to Be…

Thomson Reuters

Those looking for work in business data and news could be forgiven for thinking that the market is in the doldrums, but it seems old faithful Thomson Reuters might just be bucking the trend as it records healthy revenue growth this second quarter. The Manhattan firm with global reach announced recently that revenue generated by ongoing business grew by three per cent to $3.2billion between April and June – entirely in line with expectations. However the big news is that where other corporations are stalling, Thomson Reuters have recorded a 64% increase in profits taking the total to a nice rounded $935million – up from $572million 12 months ago following the sale of its healthcare business to Veritas. Thomson Reuters’ companies include financial businesses Thomson Reuters Eikon and Thomson Reuters Elektron, Reuters News Agency, intelligence firm Cortellis, tax and accounting tools OneSource and Checkpoint and a range of  healthcare solutions including Thomson Reuters Marketscan Treatment Pathways, Thomson Reuters Healthcare Indexes and the Micromedex Drug Interactions App. The Figures Speak For Themselves Adjusted earnings stood at 54 cents per share compared with 51 cents for the same period in 2011, four cents clear of analysts’ predictions of 50 cents, although revenue…

What’s Next For Ross?

Ross Levinsohn

Things never stay still in the hurly-burly that is digital media, and just this week Yahoo announced that interim CEO Ross Levinsohn is set to walk following the appointment of Google’s Marissa Mayer. This is the second time he has been passed over for the top job. Following the sacking of Scott Thompson, now firmly ensconced at shopping network Shoprunner, Levinsohn was asked to step into the breech and oversee content creation, engineering and strategy. He led advertising sales and content, he also won praise for brokering partnerships with Clear Channel, Spotify and, most importantly, Facebook. Levinsohn also managed a deal with Chinese e-commerce firm Ali Baba Group Holding that would see the company buy  back a stake in itself and earn Yahoo $6.3 billion in cash and up to $800 million in preferred stock. Taking all of the above into account, it seems likely he will not be left on the shelf for long. However, in the ever-more incestuous world of the search engine, where CEOs and execs seem to skip effortlessly between the giants, what does this latest move actually mean for the sector and where might Levinsohn end up? Struggling Search Engines Yahoo will undoubtedly now be…

Google’s got a new toy – but what’s next for Wildfire?

Wildfire

Never a business to let the grass grow under its feet, it seems Google has added to its ever-increasing stable with the recent acquisition of social media marketing specialists Wildfire. Founded in 2008, Wildfire has more than 400 employees and manages the social media marketing for more than 16,000 businesses. The company provides software that links directly to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest among others and engages users by targeted ads, promotions, analytics, scheduled messaging, page and content creation and evaluation. The search giant is reported to have splashed a cool $250million on the start-up and is clearly looking to extend its reach into social media campaigning, as well as improve its own targeted advertising as the popularity of social networking grows unchecked. But does the purchase mean Wildfire will lose it’s identity as it’s simply swallowed by the amorphous, omnipresent Google? Recent Acquisitions According to many sources, Google has made on average at least one purchase per week since 2010 and the list now totals around 100 companies – the most high-profile of which, Motorola Mobility, was bought for a reputed $12billion. Other companies taken over by the digital behemoth also include Picasa, YouTube, Android, Picnik and Admeld and…

America’s girlfriend is back after eight years and ready to embrace the digital revolution

Ricki Lake

‘America’s girlfriend’ Ricki Lake is back, and this time she’s taking her chat show online as well as on TV. The new show will air from September 10. The show has alreday been picked up by Tribune stations in New York, Dallas, Denver and Cleveland, while Fox stations have agreed to carry the show in Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston. The show has also been sold to stations owned by Sinclair, Post Newsweek, Granite, Fisher, titan, Sun Broadcasting, Quincy, new Vision, Journal, Citadel and Gray. The last time we saw Ricki on TV was during Dancing with The Stars, now America’s favourite girl next door looks set to grace monitors everywhere with a new chat show which is using its own social network ‘Friends of Ricki’, to get fans talking and generate material. Could this mean there are some shiny new jobs in the offing for anyone who might be interested in a position on the new and improved Ricki Lake Show? With over 75,000 ‘likers’ on its Facebook page, it certainly seems like people want to get involved and with numbers like that there’s no wonder syndication has proved so popular, a fact which will undoubtedly be pleasing the production…

A New Future For Yahoo? What’s The Deal With Marissa Mayer?

Yahoo

Five chief execs in three years is not a stat to be proud of, but has Yahoo found the answer to its business woes in the shape of new CEO and Google turncoat Marissa Mayer? The turbulence experienced by Yahoo over the past few years looks set to continue a little while longer after the surprise appointment of former Google exec Mayer as its new CEO. While most people could be forgiven for thinking that this time the job might land in the lap of long-suffering interim CEO Ross Levinsohn, it seems the board had other ideas. As Mayer walked in the door, Levinsohn walked out. Without the experience and contact book of Levinsohn its felt that Mayer might struggle to make her mark – particularly as she lacks the advertising know-how of her predecessor and that certainly seems to be where the sector’s headed. Unique and innovative products are great, but you need to make money to develop them and that’s where the advertising dollars count. Industry Experience No one can deny that Mayer has the credentials. She was one of only 20 employees when she joined Google in 1999 as their first female engineer and during her tenure…
