Daisy Whitney Bids Farewell to the New Media Minute

Since September 2007, online video columnist, producer, reporter and author, Daisy Whitney has provided insight and analysis of the business of online video through her weekly web television show, The New Media Minute. This past week marked the final episode of her four and half year run. In her last episode she featured an interview with Metacafe CEO, Erick Hachenburg, who shared tips to better optimize your videos for search and discovery. While Whitney is retiring the New Media Minute, she says that she will continue to be very active and is "just going old school reporting on media in articles and columns instead!"

She explained the news on her Twitter page:

In Sept 2007, I started an online newscast covering new media. Four and a half years later, I'm saying goodbye to the New Media Minute.

But never fear! I'll still be reporting on online video and new media for many outlets including MediaPost, Cynopsis,  and more!

But all good things must end, and it's better to end on a high note as George Costanza taught us.

And on that note, here is the farewell episode of The New Media Minute! Complete w George Costanza too

Many friends and fans have expressed how much they'll miss her weekly online video news updates, but as she said you can read her daily Mediapost column, VidBlog and articles other media outlets. 

As a big supporter of her and her husband, Jeff Brooks, I wish both Daisy and Jeff all the best for continued success.
