The TV News segment has always had a significant Sports segment for as long as I can remember.

Now, many news channels also provide an Entertainment (ie celebrity gossip) segment. Minor tweak for added relevancy perhaps.

Other than that, the TV News format seems to be relatively unchanging and undifferentiated across providers.

I guess the most common format of Headlines – Stories – Sports – Gossip – Weather – Feel Good makes sense from a most-common-denominator perspective. It covers the needs of most of the population.

Is generic most-common-denominator news still relevant? And for how much longer?

If someone were to completely revolutionise the News segment, what would that look like?
