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.
