Scott Ehrlich, executive producer of News America Digital Publishing, rejected the idea that the push medium is on its way out.
"People just stopped talking about it," Mr. Ehrlich said. "There's a value to the passive delivery of information. You're basically able to monitor news as it happens."
Mr. Ehrlich said FoxWire is designed to create a "sticky," functional application on Fox News to draw people back repeatedly.
