It is established that with the advent and development of various types of media, different models of mass media business philosophy were transformed, which were formed in the first half of the 20th century. However, the process of mass media convergence that began at the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century led to global changes not only at all stages of creation to distribution of content but also in the search for other models for the development of the media business philosophy. This article analyzes the philosophy of innovative models for financing media business in conditions of mass media convergence. The empirical base of the research was made up of materials from online publications, reviews of the media markets in Russia and the world, as well as the results of interviews with the experts interviewed on the topic of the monetization philosophy of media business in terms of convergence. The authors identified the following models of media business philosophy in conditions of mass media convergence: 1) product range expansion – sale of content and other goods; 2) data transactions – sale of received data and their visualization; 3) material optimization on space and time – cost reduction by eliminating waste. The considered models of new media business philosophy for the development of the media business in conditions of mass media convergence can only be viewed as additional sources of financing in the 21st century.
