The pivot to video is not without its victims.
Pivoting to video comes at a heavy cost to publishers. At the Digiday Publishing Summits in the U.S. and Europe, we asked 85 executives if they are laying off staff to support their pivots to video. One-third of European publishers have either laid off employees or plan to do so in their video shifts. By contrast, only 16 percent of U.S. publishers were prepared to make that move.
