Journalism's past and future: ex-BBC news chief

BBC global news director Richard Sambrook is excited about what the web offers news consumers and news rooms, but frets about substance.

"The Internet for breaking and daily news is going to be more important, but where is the space on the web for current affairs and investigative journalism?" he asked in an interview with Vin Ray of the BBC College of Journalism.

After three decades in journalism, Sambrook is leaving the BBC to join the public relations firm Edelman.
