TBD’s Brady: ‘There Is No Silver Bullet–It’s Just Shrapnel’

That’s the business model of the future for journalism: “there isn’t one stream that’s going to make us successful,” TBD general manager Jim Brady told ONA 2010 attendees this morning.

PBS Mediashift’s Craig Silverman attended the keynote and wrote up a nice summary. Representing TBD were Brady, editor Erik Wemple, social media producer Mandy Jenkins, and director of community engagement Steve Buttry.

Read the original piece to learn what Wemple thinks about failure and how many TweetDeck columns Jenkins uses.

Jim Brady’s New Site Has A Name, And It’s TBD

The new local news site headed by ex-WashingtonPost.com executive editor Jim Brady and edited by former City Paper editor Erik Wemple has a name. It’s TBD.

Lest this turn into a wretched version of “Who’s On First?” we’ll just spill the beans: the new site is named TBD.com.

The site has a welcome message up right now, which explains:
“The traditional news culture is that you don’t publish or broadcast a story until all the questions are answered, all the t’s crossed and i’s dotted. The evening newscast or morning newspaper is presented as a finished product, the culmination of a day’s work for the news staff.

“But TBD will never be a finished product. On the web, on mobile devices and on our 24-hours cable news channel, we’ll always be in motion: constantly updating, improving and evolving; seeking more details, reaction or community conversation.”

Brady tweeted the announcement a few hours ago.

TBD is apparently going to launch with a staff of 50. Currently working at TBD besides Brady: Erik Wemple, Lisa Rowan, Mandy Jenkins, Julie Westfall, Jeff Sonderman, and Daniel Victor
