NAB Show, NewTek To Host Broadcast Minds Panel
NewTek announced that the 2013 NAB Show will host Broadcast Minds, a discussion with Internet TV content creators and producers about the on-going democratization of technology, television, and social media, and the changing face of traditional broadcasting.
The event, produced in partnership with NewTek, will be moderated by Revision3 CEO Jim Louderback and feature the following participants:
- Penn Jillette, American illusionist, comedian, musician, and best-selling author
- Tom Green, Canadian actor, rapper, writer, comedian, and talk-show host
- Shira Lazar, Emmy Award nominee and host of What’s Trending
- Bruce Gersh, president/CEO, Fishbowl Worldwide Media.
“Today’s traditional broadcasters must have a multiplatform strategy since fans want and expect shows to be delivered to them on their own terms, whether that is on computers, tablets or smartphones,” says Carter Holland, EVP of worldwide marketing at NewTek. “In addition, creative individuals are finding that they can easily produce compelling content and use the Internet to share their ideas, and reach niche audiences through all available platforms. This year, the 2013 NAB Show brings this hot topic to the big stage, where Broadcast Minds participants will share their views on how this trend is reshaping our culture and society.”
The Broadcast Minds event at the 2013 NAB Show is open to all registered attendees. A live stream of the discussion can be watched at www.nabshow.com.
