Beet.TV has become an established global “news network” for the digital media industry, says Randall Rothenberg, President and CEO of the IAB, the leading global trade association for digital publishers, in this segment.

Rothenberg notes that  Beet.TV has become “newly independent” – a reference to the recent sale of my public relations business to ASGK, the firm founded by former White House advisor David Axelrod.

My PR firm, founded in 1992, had supported the growth of Beet.TV over the past seven years.  I will always be grateful to my partner Kent Holland, the staff and clients for being so supportive and patient during the growth of this media business which i truly love.

Many thanks to Randy and all the great people in the business who have encouraged and supported Beet.TV over the years.  And special thanks to the creative people who work with me on the show every day.

I am heading out on Sunday to the IAB’s Annual Leadership Meeting in Scottsdale where we will be reporting and exploring the revolution in digital media.  Should be an great event.  Please watch.

Here is our first in interview with Randy who gives an overview of the IAB Leadership Meeting.

We are super pleased that Videology is sponsoring our coverage of the IAB meeting.
