Can Des Moines Register TV be far behind? Lauren Indvik at Mashable:

Conde Nast Entertainment is ramping up its digital video network, launching channels for Vogue and Wired later this month. New weekly shows, including the network’s first scripted series, are also being added to the channels Glamour and GQ debuted in March. The announcements were made at Conde Nast Entertainment’s Newfront presentation Wednesday.

Vogue’s channel will launch on May 8; Wired’s, on May 15. Vogue’s lineup includes “From the Vogue Closet”; “Elettra’s Goodness,” a cooking show… with a model; and “Vintage Bowles,” which follows Vogue International Editor at Large on his hunts for vintage garments and accessories (see below). Teasers for those have been posted on Vogue’s YouTube channel. Wired has released just two teasers for its forthcoming series: “The Window,” a behind-the-scenes show about industrial engineering (see top); and “Angry Nerd,” in which staffer Chris Baker sounds off about “aggravating issues in the tech world.”

Everybody’s chasing those high video ad CPMs.

The future of local news is “civic information,” not “declining legacy systems,” says new report
“In this vision, the community librarian facilitating conversations around authoritative, trusted digital news is as celebrated as the dogged reporter pursuing a scoop.”
