Hi, I'm Alex Kantrowitz. I'm a journalist who covers the business side of digital publishing for Ad Age and regularly contributes to Forbes.
In addition to Ad Age and Forbes, my work has been published by Fortune, BuzzFeed, PBS MediaShift and the Ithaca Journal. It's also been highlighted in places such as Harvard's Nieman Journalism Lab, Poynter, MediaGazer, TechMeme and JimRomenesko.com,
For Ad Age, my focus is on the efforts of digital publishers to stay above water in a time of radical change. Here's a link to my archive: Alex Kantrowitz on Ad Age.
For Forbes, I write for a more general audience. Since jumping on board in May 2012, I've looked at the digital side of the 2012 election, the Vatican's social media strategy and the shutdown of Google Reader. You can find my Forbes site here: forbes.com/alexkantrowitz
Before becoming a journalist, I worked at New York City's Economic Development Corporation and Operative Media. I also managed the first New York State Assembly campaign of a retired credit union manager from Queens. That man is now in his third term.
Back in the day, I graduated from Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations.
