Chris Albrecht is a staff reporter at NewTeeVee, the authoritative blog that covers the online video space.  He stopped by the Beet.TV a couple weeks back to chat about trends in content and consumption.

He talked about the glut in online comedy channels and the challenge for independents to keep things funny in order to create a sustainable business model.

Chris brings a lot of  relevant experience to his work as a journalist who he cut his teeth at ZDNet and as an exec at the MTV-acquired Atoms Film.  He does a great job.

Liz Gannes, NewTeeVee’s editor, Om Malik and the NTV team have played in essential role in building understanding about our quickly evolving indusry.   In their first year, they’ve built traffic, influence and have launched an impressive conference business.

The NewTeeVee Live conference in San Francisco in November was among the best industry events I’ve attended.  Liz just told me that the event has been re-scheduled for  November  13.   You should save the date, for sure.
