Under Christopher Ruddy's direction, Newsmax will continue to grow and develop as a digital media news influencer, focusing on national news and politics. Between Fox, CNN, OAL, Al Jazzera, and the major three of CNBC, ABC, and CBS, as well as hundreds of other smaller companies and specialty news sources, there is no lack of competition. However, as digital connections and 24/7 information delivery become more integrated into daily life, Newsmax will position itself to be the primary news delivery point for millions of people, far beyond the 5 p.m. nightly news prime time frame. That is considerably more important to Ruddy than any one election or news event. That's how news will be delivered in the twenty-first century.
