TVB Commentary & "Quotables"

“The spate of newly successful direct-to-consumer companies are themselves making heavy use of TV along with digital, although they themselves are digital companies. The light of TV ROI is hard to hide under a bushel, not to mention branding effects.”—James Fennessy, CEO, Standard Media Index
“Speaking for the broadcasters, I can assure you that competition for advertising dollars among them is as cutthroat as it has ever been in the medium’s 70-year history.”—Harry Jessell, editor, TVNewsCheck
“It is the journalists that are working the field, that have a passion to do something better, to create content that their audience wants to watch. That is where we found the best innovation is coming from.”—Ellen M. Crooke, VP of News, TEGNA Media
“While OTT video may be the hot topic in the media industry, traditional linear TV remains king of the castle -- for now. Samsung’s data found that 81% of its smart TVs still tune in to linear TV.”—Alex Weprin, writer, MediaPost
“To anyone who is honest and takes a step back, there is no question that the best thing for our business would be a full relaxation of ownership restrictions - the best thing for consumers, employees and the communities that we serve. Arguments to the contrary are defensive, self-serving, misinformed or a combination thereof.”—Jack Abernethy, CEO, Fox Television Stations
