the theory of the Niche


This volume considers how media firms, as well as entire industries, exist and persist over time despite what often seems to be intense competition for such resources as audiences and advertisers. Addressing competition within and among media organizations and industries, including broadcasting, cable, and the Internet, author John W.

He examines the targets of the different media – audience, advertisers, money – and how they compete, using examples from a variety of studies.
