Some of the media's biggest names are leaving traditional outlets to venture into digital journalism. Since July, writers like The Washington Post's Ezra Klein, The New York Times' Nate Silver and The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg have left to join or co-found media startups like Vox, FiveThirtyEight and Re/code. Will these departures and new websites reshape the future of news?

Guests:

Ken Doctor, news industry analyst for Outsell, a global research and advisory firm, and author of "Newsonomics: Twelve New Trends That Will Shape the News You Get"

Felix Salmon, finance blogger for Reuters

Jessica Lessin, founder and editor-in-chief of The Information, a subscription-only media site covering tech news

Jay Rosen, editor and writer for PressThink.org, a blog covering journalism and changes in digital media, and director of Studio 20, a new media program at NYU's Journalism Institute
