Content is king, with TV being consumed in the masses in America - up to 4hours a day AVERAGE. So despite the Digital world proclaiming that TV is dead, it's very much alive and my client has a huge proposition.
Working as a start-up but owned by one of the biggest media companies in the world they are looking for someone to monetize their inventory across the brand and agency sales piece. Although relatively new as a publisher they are working across huge household names in TV such as American Idol, Jeopardy and Family Feud with huge viewership.
With alternative partners, YouTube has licensed them to directly sell the inventory given that it is transparent and guaranteed brand safety. This gives you premium content, licensed and owned but also actually working directly in the offices of holding companies that create these shows.
Almost sounds good to true, I would apply now if I was you..
