What Will the Supreme Court Decide in the Aereo Case?

aereoNext month, Aereo has its day in court — the U.S. Supreme Court. The service, which charges customers a monthly fee to watch local TV stations online, is being sued by ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC who claim Aereo’s entire business is illegal.

The Obama administration is siding with the broadcasters while Aereo’s CEO says the company is “confident in the merits of our position.” Despite an injunction in Utah, Aereo continues to expand: the service is now available in Austin, Cincinnati and more than 20 other regions.

So what will the fate of the streaming television service be?

We’ll be talking about all this next month at the TVNewser Show, April 29 in New York City. Among the guests is Tom Taylor, the Assistant Managing Editor of Bloomberg BNA’s United States Law Week. Taylor will be covering the Supreme Court arguments and will break down the case for us.

Data, Data Everywhere

Data. It’s all the rage these days: good rage and bad rage.

Some are packaging it nicely into new data-driven sites, like FiveThirtyEight and Vox.com to help us better understand the news.

Others are making money off of data — your data — data brokers, they’re called. (Here’s “60 Minutes” reporting on them earlier this month).

Then there are overreaching intelligence agencies, whose collected data, later leaked, led to an international incident, followed by the creation of even more new Websites, most notably The Intercept from Glenn Greenwald.

Data can help us. Data can hurt us. For people who work in news, all this data and the changing nature of privacy impacts how you do your jobs. We’ll be talking about all this next month at the TVNewser Show, April 29 in New York City. Among the guests is Trevor Timm, the co-founder of the Freedom of the Press Foundation, which is dedicated to transparency and accountability in government.

Bret Baier to Keynote TVNewser Show, April 29

BretBaierFox News “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier will be the morning keynote speaker for the TVNewser Show, April 29 in New York City. This being an election year, we’ll talk with Baier about what’s ahead for Washington, and about media coverage of policy, politics and politicians.

Baier will join decision makers and thought leaders from NBC News, ABC News, and CNN for the day-long conference. You may have seen the ads running on TVNewser and our other sites which explain the agenda, but what we’re trying to do with the show is bring the leading minds in the business in one room on one day to discuss where the business is going.

Just a week before the conference the Supreme Court will take up the case of Aereo. So we’ll talk about that. We’ll also talk about media consolidation, the second screen, newsroom diversity, how broadcasters are adapting to the growth of TV everywhere, and more. Other speakers include Tribune broadcasting president Larry Wert, Fusion anchor Alicia Menendez, CNN executive Geraldine Moriba and NBC News executive Julian March.

We’re also pleased to present the TVNewser Job Fair which will tap the resources of Mediabistro’s leading job service, bringing together the nation’s top media companies in one place, allowing attendees to meet one-on-one with hiring managers.

We’ll bring you updates about speakers and attendees in the coming weeks. We hope you’ll join us on April 29.

Learn How to Launch Your Career as a TV News Reporter

tv_reporter09TV News Reporting, a four-week intensive course starting January 14 in New York, teaches students what it takes to be on the news today.

Stephanie Tsoflias, a reporter/anchor at News 12 and founder of Reel Reporting, says “I didn’t want creating a demo reel to be a mystery to aspiring reporters anymore. Managers don’t want to see your college reels, or reels with only entertainment pieces. They want reporters who dig up stories for their reel that no one else has.”  Tsoflias has made it her mission to teach her students how to create a reel that will catch the attention of hiring managers at TV stations across the country, without going through a conventional university.

Her Mediabistro class alone has launched the career of at least four junior TV news reporters.  One of her students looked into expensive university courses, but decided to go another route. She describes her experience with Tsoflias as “proving to be one of the best investments I have ever made.  A month after the course was over, I had two interviews at TV stations, including one in a top 100 market. One month after that, I was offered a job with high exposure on a TV morning news show.”

With more outlets for continuing education than ever before, students have options of cost-effective, practical learning both online and in their cities. If you’re looking to become the next face of TV news in the greater New York area, please see more details on Tsoflias’ Mediabistro class here.
