The Daily Beast has made a few new hires in order to launch a new venture: an online talk show. Sources told The New York Observer that the show would have a format like The View and would consist of individual webisodes rather than series programming.
Also this week, TIME magazine announced its plans to offer subscribers “All Access” subscriptions to content in print, online (including a new paid “magazine channel”), and on tablets. PaidContent calls the plan a way to attract readers to the print magazine and to please subscribers who don’t want to pay twice for content. According to TIME‘s press release, the website has 95 percent original content and saw a 31 percent increase in traffic in June 2011 vs the previous year.
