Beet.TV has an interview with the BBC Worldwide’s vice president for strategy and sales Tom Bowman about how the news goliath is thinking about native advertising — an idea both old and new that’ll be at the center of online advertising discussions in 2014.

If you look at the International Herald Tribune, for instance, you can get “This article brought to you in association with” has been running for donkey’s years.
