Q&A with Runner's World Magazine's David Willey, and Jessica Murphy
"2017 is going to be just as disruptive as the past two years have been, especially for television, in particular.

We’ve seen that in the election, with all of the fake news and some of the other controversies around how news stories are elevated on social media, like Facebook. And maybe I’m idealistic, but I really do think that people will demand and choose high quality information, entertainment, storytelling and journalism. And that’s going to be the key to our success going forward.” David Willey, editor in chief, Runner's World.
