From the context I assume you mean news and specialist field (e.g. tech,social.marketing,health) editorial content...
The future will most likely be dominated by paid for aggregators, where authors or producers are paid on a consumption basis. These will make up the quality
content that the majority will consume. Think Spotify crossed with Netflix.
It is likely that if you like, share, comment you will pay a lower price than if you don't "invest" in the community, and merely consume.
Algorithms will try to predict the news you are most interested in and surprise you with a few new authors or subject matter areas as a part of your regular feed.
There will also be a significant migration to video for a lot of content, but a significant amount will stay as text/audio
Any free content will mostly be advertorial (content marketing by brands), will will have in built biases.
Platforms like Linkedin will continue to offer up free content, but even their algorithm will seek to bury the lower quality content.
If there a number of big failures during the next tech market correction the timeline for this transition may extend.
