NAB Show And NewTek Bring Back "Broadcast Minds" Session
March 6, 2014
The NAB Show, is bringing back last year's highest-rated session NewTek Presents: Broadcast Minds. This year's session, moderated by actor, comedian and host Tom Green on April 9 in Las Vegas, will take a deep and entertaining look at how some of the top creators of digital content are forging new trails and drawing a profit online.
Attendees will hear from some of the brightest minds in digital broadcasting: Tom Green, actor, comedian and host of Tom Green's House Tonight; Criss Angel, the illusionist, producer, director and performance artist behind A&E's MINDFREAK; Rob Barnett, founder and CEO of My Damn Channel and home of recently announced Videocracy; and Cali Lewis, host of GeekBeat TV.
Each speaker will guide the audience through their various approaches to creating top-notch, high quality programming built to live online. Additionally, attendees will walk away with first-hand knowledge of how these creators build, sustain and grow their audiences while effectively monetizing their projects. NewTek will live stream the session at www.nabshow.com.
"As storytellers increasingly turn to the Internet to build and cultivate audiences on a global scale, it's no surprise that last year's Broadcast Minds discussion received such high marks from NAB Show attendees," said Philip Nelson, chief relationship officer at NewTek. "We are proud to team up with the 2014 NAB Show again this year and to offer attendees the unique experience of learning from leading content creators who are influencing and shaping the new online future of broadcast media."
