Motto I Live By: Pursue your vision with unstoppable passion!

My prediction for direct-to-consumer video is… We launched Local Now—a streaming service that provides local news, weather, sports, and traffic—and our proprietary technology allows us to do that based on one’s zip code. I am highly confident that AVOD/DTC streaming services will dominate the media landscape in the very near future.
