Radio [itvt]: Steve Oh of The Young Turks and Carrie Sheffield of Bold TV
Carrie Sheffield is founder of digital news service, Bold, and also (together with singer and activist, Clay Aiken) co-hosts the service's flagship program, "Bold TV," which is produced by Roker Labs. Steve Oh is Chief Business Officer of The Young Turks Network, the number-one news service for Millennials according to data from comScore, Tubular Labs and OpenSlate. In this lively, recorded conversation with [itvt] Editor-in-Chief, Tracy Swedlow, Sheffield and Oh discuss the origins, business strategies and political philosophies of their respective services; their plans for expansion (including incorporation into skinny bundles and partnerships with pay-TV networks); how they are attracting Millennial and Gen-Z audiences in an era when the audience for network and cable news is increasingly graying; which social-media and social-video platforms (including, of course, YouTube) their services have made use of and which have proven most--and least--effective; and much, much more.
