Non-Media Media

Newspapers and magazines are closing or cutting jobs.  Journalists are finding other kinds of work.

At Axios, Nicholas Johnston reports on non-media companies producing media:
By the numbers: The proportion of people on LinkedIn who report they work in content/editor roles at non-media companies has grown by 32% in the past decade, according to LinkedIn data. The biggest increases were at "consumer," "high tech" and "corporate" firms, like marketers and consultancies.
Yes, but: Sara insists that I note much of this content creation is not typical news or journalism; many of these editor jobs are more accurately described as "head of content" roles.
