… Randy Falco, President-COO of NBC Uni’s TV Group is in. Very quickly, and hopefully coherently:
1. One outside exec’s quick take: “Maybe they wanted a content guy to back up their positioning as a content company. That’s [been the problem] … great sales team, great traffic, [expletive] content.”
2. If so, well, Yahoo’s current situation may indicate getting the outside content guy is not the best road to go down.
3. Or is the underlying problem not that AOL has spotty content—but that it’s a technology company in which the technology has rarely been as good as it should be? (Try watching a video clip in tmz.com versus watching a video clip on youtube.)
I’m throwing up some quick thoughts at the end of a long day.
Do tell me: What are yours?
