I’m excited to share that Christy Tanner, EVP and GM of CBS News Digital, will be the keynote guest at the NABShow’s Online Video Program on April 10th in Las Vegas. I will be interviewing Christy about how CBSN, which is CBS News’ streaming video news service launched in 2014, creates new value for viewers, advertisers and the CBS Corporation.
As a direct-to-consumer service, CBSN offers live news coverage from 5am to 10pm 7 days a week. It delivered 280 million live streams in 2017, up 17% vs. 2016. CBSN leverages CBS News’ original reporting, simulcasts special reports and rebroadcasts programming such as “CBS This Morning” and “Face the Nation” in addition to its own original programming. CBSN is a free, ad-supported service.
Christy is a digital media veteran who in her current role oversees CBS News on all digital platforms, including CBSN, CBSNews.com and mobile and OTT apps. Previously, she has been with CBS Interactive Media, TV Guide Digital and The Washington Post Company. I’ve known Christy for years and I’m really looking forward to learning how she’s building CBSN and how it fits within larger industry trends.
