Why Talking New Media?:
TNM is a news, information and commentary website for the digital publishing industry – magazines, newspapers and books. Launched in January of 2010, three weeks before the introduction of the iPad, TNM has evolved from a website built on Google’s Blogger platform, to a self-hosted news website (redesigned and relaunched on July 1, 2013).
Talking New Media covers all things digital publishing, but focuses much of its attention on tablet publishing – Newsstand apps, interactive eBooks, mobile and tablet newspapers.
TNM is part of TNM Digital Media LLC, a start-up digital publishing company. TNMDM publishes print and eBooks, and has launched a second website covering the intersection of politics and the media – PoliMedia.press.
About the Publisher
The publisher of Talking New Media is Douglas Hebbard, a 30+ year veteran of the newspaper and magazine publishing industry. Hebbard started his career at Hearst Newspapers at the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, and worked for several other newspaper chains before being recruited to the McGraw-Hill Companies to publish the company’s 100+ year old construction daily newspaper. There, he launched his first magazine. He was eventually recruited to Chicago where he published several trade magazines before being hired by Reed Business Information (then still known as Cahners).
