"It’s an incredibly exciting and challenging time in the online news industry. For those that care about serving consumers with high quality content, there’s never been so much opportunity. But we are more aware than ever of the potential threats. I choose to believe that those dedicated to bringing innovation and great experiences to their audiences will not just survive, but thrive. The Drum Online Media Awards are an opportunity to be inspired by what the best are achieving."
