I completed an exclusive, one-on-one interview with Richard Johnson, editor of the New York Post’s Page Six, the most influential gossip column in daily print journalism today, for “On the Record…Online,” my podcast for public relations and marketing professionals which explores how technology is changing the news media business, how journalists use technology to do their job and how the internet impacts their perception of news and information.
