PODCAST: Music journalism legend David Hepworth on the internet and the future of publishing

March 26, 2012

David Hepworth of The Word, is well placed to talk about realities of magazine publishing












David Hepworth is one of a handful of journalists who have helped inform my life reading about music.

From Smash Hits to Q to The Word magazine, he has been an ever present figure in my media diet since I was a teenager.

Thanks to a profound interest in the new technologies that are transforming our media world, Hepworth is well placed to speak to students, and interested amateurs, about the future of publishing and what works best in the modern era.

He was kind enough to give me some time to speak to him about podcasting, the changes in the magazine publishing industry and how difficult it is to balance serving the fertile and engaged, but free, online world and integrating this into the bread and butter of publishing – making money from a magazine.
