Paley Center Awards on Ice

The hope was to create a television awards show that would rival the longstanding Emmys. The Paley Center for Media had planned just that, as we reported in September 2010. The organization was making preparations to broadcast the initial Paley Center Awards in May 2012 from New York.

But hold everything.

The deal to televise the upstart event could not be agreed upon with several broadcast and cable networks, the Hollywood Reporter (THR) says.

While Paley CEO Pat Mitchell tells THR they will keep plugging away for a future awards program, she adds that the “Paley Prize” was never meant to replace the Emmy.

The Paley Awards had the financial backing of high-profile executives, including Sony TV’s Steve Mosko and former Fox Networks CEO Tony Vinciquerra.

The Paley Center for Media Launches ‘Next Big Thing’ Event Series for Tech Startups and Media Companies

The Paley Center for Media has announced the launch of The Next Big Thing, a quarterly event where tech-savvy entrepreneurs can pitch their business plans to investors and help shape the future of news. A new spin on the organization’s mission to celebrate media industry movers and shakers, the inaugural event will take place at the Paley Center in New York City in January 2011 with sponsorship from Velociter, the strategic investment arm of Mediabrands.  Get your pitches together, because the Paley Center is bringing the media, entertainment, and technology communities in one space to talk about the next big thing.  From the press release:

In consultation with About.com founder and Paley Center trustee Scott Kurnit, the Paley Center has convened a Next Big Thing advisory board to help identify startups and curate the sessions. The advisory board will be chaired by Kurnit and include Tim Hanlon, CEO and managing director, Velociter; Wendy Clark, SVP, Integrated Marketing and Communications Capabilities, Coca-Cola; Kay Koplovitz, Paley Center board member and founder and CEO, Koplovitz & Co.; Alan Patricof, founder and managing director, Greycroft LLC; Clay Shirky, author and associate professor, NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program; angel investor Yossi Vardi; and Fred Wilson, managing partner, Flatiron Partners and Union Square Ventures.

“By enabling this kind of exchange of ideas and experience between the new and the established, the Next Big Thing series could have a direct impact on innovation and growth across the media industry,” said Mr. Kurnit, CEO of AdKeeper, Inc. in a statement.  ”Startups get access to high-level executives and the wisdom of their collective experience while media executives and investors get a closed-door look at new ideas and new talent from the digital world.”

The gatherings are invitation-only, so interested parties should consider joining the Paley Center’s Media Council.
