For all of you still following this situation (mainly personal family members, etc.):
Osberg is warm to the idea of paid content as a revenue stream, especially in developing formats like mobile, e-readers and the iPad. He does not anticipate putting the Inquirer and Daily News behind a pay wall, though he said he would like to experiment with premium-level "experiences that people might pay for."
Osberg said he "has ideas of where to go" with the Daily News but was reluctant to discuss details yet. Folding the tabloid is not on his radar; it too can be part of a growth strategy.
Funny -- I've heard a lot of "ideas of where to go with the Daily News" right here in the comments section of this blog -- but most of them are unprintable.
