Since 2007, Knight-McCormick leadership programs at the Knight Digital Media Center have given me a front-row seat at the transformation of news leadership to meet the demands of the digital age.

The more than 100 news leaders who have participated in the programs faced a dizzying array of choices about how to best shape a digital strategy, navigate tricky organizational sandpits as they implement it, and adjust and reset their tactics each time an innovation or a new cutback hits.

Newspaper publishers are raving about Apple Newsstand, saying they have seen a drastic increase in app downloads since its Oct. 12 launch.

Newsstand, a feature included in iOS 5, provides a portal for tablet users to select which newspaper and magazine apps they want to read on a daily basis, and automatically downloads them in the background to users' tablets and smartphones. It also brings renewed importance to the newspaper cover.

As tablets become more of a increasingly popular household fixture, the companies that package content for the devices continue make their own upgrades. Flipboard, often seen as the top dog among news aggregation apps, recently added an iPhone app, multiple accounts and larger social media footprint. Meantime, some new apps have rolled out or gained momentum, including Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO) Livestand, News Republic, NewsMix and News360.

Feeling a little stressed about tomorrow? Given the stress of company budgeting, the stress of wider economies turned upside down, the stress of stress itself (Time helpfully chirped in this week with an "Anxiety: Why It's Good for You" cover this week), many media tomorrows have turned out to be less fun than the days preceding them.

The Pulitzer board, which administers the journalism awards named after newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer, has changed the terms of submission to require digital entries only, and has also changed the description of the "breaking news" category to stress that real-time reporting will be the main criteria for that award. That has led some -- including the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard -- to speculate we could see a Pulitzer Prize for live-tweeting of the news. Whether that ever comes to pass or not, there's a case to be made that Twitter is the best tool for breaking news that the world of journalism has seen in a long time.

When the iPad launched, magazines rushed to shovel expensive rich-media features into their tablet editions. But now that they have to create editions for the new Kindle Fire and Nook Color and their ilk, some are downplaying the need for often-expensive enhancements.

Publishers say their research shows having a tricked-out app isn't the highest priority.

Are you pricing your content intelligently? Or is your pricing model lacking a scientific approach? Jimmy Gasteen is the CEO and founder of Precursive, a new media business consultancy and workflow tools firm, and previously a pricing analyst at Reed Elsevier.

Some news websites are seeing remarkably strong traffic to old stories, prompting an intriguing question -- how important is it, really, that news be new?

Tim Bradshaw reports in the Financial Times about "a surge of Facebook traffic to years-old stories" since some websites enabled the open graph, or so-called "frictionless sharing," to Facebook of every article a person reads.

That's the question I asked myself the other day as I ran smack up against The Baltimore Sun's paywall after having reached my 15 page per month (free) limit. I'm not a big reader of the Sun, but I was curious about what people were saying about Gordon Ramsay's "Kitchen Nightmares" visit to one of our local eateries.
