From network TV news producer to editor of over 90 pureplay local news sites, meet Adam Darsky.


While a student at Southern Methodist University, Adam Darsky was bitten by the  "journalism bug" writing for "The Daily Campus," so upon graduation, he took an entry-level job as a sports reporter at a small newspaper outside of Dallas. It wasn't long before he jumped from newspapers to broadcast, landing an internship at the Dallas all-sports radio station.

Darsky leaped from radio to TV, beginning his 25-years as a broadcast TV news producer running the prompter and ripping scripts at KXAS-TV in Dallas to producing and management jobs in Savannah, Tucson, Houston and Charlotte. Finally, he wound up in New York City as Executive Producer of the nation’s #1 TV morning show.

Today, you'll find Adam Darsky as the new Director of Content for the much-talked-about local news disruptor, TapInto. TapInto is a network of over 90 hyper-local franchised, online-only news websites most in New Jersey, one of the nation's most populated and media-saturated corridors.

In this 109th episode of "E&P Reports," Publisher Mike Blinder goes one-on-one with Darsky to learn about his leap from broadcast TV to hyper-local, pureplay news and what he thinks about the future of online-only news publishing.
