The Entire D6 Interview With Thomson Reuters CEO Tom Glocer (2 of 3)

We’re posting all the interviews from the sixth D: All Things Digital conference that took place in late May.

But–as many readers have requested–they will all be available in their entirety in this column.

Here’s Part 2 of 3 of an interview I did with Thomson Reuters CEO Tom Glocer.

(I will post one video part of the discussion with Glocer once a day this week, starting yesterday and concluding tomorrow.)

Thomson Reuters was created by a merger in April that created one of the world’s biggest information companies, mostly aimed at businesses and professionals.

In this video, Glocer talks about the merger of Thomson and Reuters, how to benefit as the newspaper business struggles, how news will be delivered in the online future and what scares him, digitally-speaking.
