Sean Compton may be a bit familiar to radio industry veterans from his roles as a VP of Programming for Clear Channel and, before that, at Jacor Broadcasting.
Today, he serves as President of Networks for Nexstar Media Group, charged with making WGN America’s three-hour prime-time newsblock NewsNation a success.
Two months in, what can Compton share about the ambitious launch of NewsNation? What makes it distinct from all of the other news sources available to viewers? Is there a plan to bring content to cord-cutters?
These questions, along with reminiscence of his time working with Randy Michaels, are the highlights of the latest RBR+TVBR InFOCUS Podcast, presented by Dot.FM, hosted by Radio + Television Business Report Editor-in-Chief Adam R Jacobson.
