NEW YORK, NY (August 12, 2013) — NYC Television Week, presented by NewBay Media and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), has announced an initial lineup of impressive keynote speakers chosen from a wide variety of key television industry areas. The announced speakers include Irwin Gotlieb, Chairman, GroupM; Peter Liguori, President and CEO, Tribune Company; Steve Mosko, President, Sony Pictures Television; Tony Pace, Chief Marketing Officer, Subway; Rich Ross, CEO, Shine America; Deb Roy, Chief Media Scientist, Twitter; Gordon H.

The inaugural NYC Television Week takes place from October 28-30 at the Waldorf Astoria and Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City.

“We are honored to have such prominent thought leaders join us for NYC Television Week,” states Louis Hillelson, VP/Group Publisher, Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News. “From sports to advertising to programming to media investments and policy, these speakers represent the great breadth of the television industry, which is being analyzed, examined, and celebrated like never before at this event.”

In addition to the roster of thought leaders presenting keynotes, some of the television industry’s most innovative, forward-thinking companies have joined NYC Television Week as sponsors, and, as with the speakers, these companies represent several important industry categories. Current sponsors include Sony as Founding Sponsor; Viamedia as Platinum Sponsor; FreeWheel, HSN, and Harris Broadcast as Gold Sponsors; and the AMC Networks as General Sponsor.

The list of speakers and sponsors is constantly growing — all contributing to making NYC Television Week the can’t-miss event of the fall season. For updates on speakers, the agenda, and to register for the event — which has limited seating — visit NYCTelevisionWeek.com.
