TV station groups see a significant opportunity in expanding their news and other local programming to serve audiences on streaming, NextGen TV, web, mobile and in some cases their lineups by day. How they manage to do this within their technology and personnel parameters will be the subject of a panel, Creating More Content for Multimedia Audiences, at TVNewsCheck‘s TV2025: Monetizing the Future event at the NAB New York Show.
Steve PruettExecutive Chairman, Cox Media Group; Frank CichaEVP programming, Fox TV stations; Pat LaPlatney, co-CEO, Gray Television; and Blake RussellEVP, station operations and content development, will join TVNewsCheck Editor Michael Depp, moderator of the panel, for the opening session of TV2025 at 9 a.m. on October 19 at the Javits Center in New York City.
“With content creation teams maxed out, station groups need to streamline traditional workflows to enable news sharing, collaboration and easy reversion for multiple platforms,” Depp said. “Steve, Frank, Pat and Blake will examine how the hub, cloud, AI and other technologies are fueling this transformation and how busy press teams are encouraged to change. We will also consider whether station groups will need expand their teams and increase compensation.
Additional TV2025 panels will cover NextGen, streaming and the future of local media; Cybersecurity: Risk Mitigation Strategies in a High Visibility Industry; How data will redefine the TV/Audience relationship; Technology, Data and the Future of Local TV Advertising; and Technology, the Cloud and the Station of the Future Group.
TVNewsCheck Editor Michael Depp will also host an annual conversation with station group heads on the state of the industry, and EW Scripps President and CEO Adam Symson will accept TVNewsCheck‘s Station Group of the Year Award on behalf of his company.
