I had a chance to talk to, and meet alot of influential people while at the Kelsey Interactive Local Media show last week in L.A. One of them was Chris Tolles; CEO of Topix, of of the biggest and fastest growing, online news destinations. It’s backed by 4 major newspaper groups. Topix also works with other media companies to grow and engage their online audiences through forums, classifieds, publishing platforms and RSS feeds.
Click above to see a short interview I had with Chris about an announcement that his company recently made. Chris also speaks to the opportunity that newspapers have, and why they need to look outside of their print companies for advanced online solutions.
