Broadcasters Focus on Future and Fundamentals at Natpe Station Group Summit

16 January 2017 2:26 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For decades, broadcast TV stations were the first line of defense for the television industry. Starting with baby boomers, generations of viewers grew up with great affection for hometown stations that served up a mix of network programs and nationally syndicated series leavened with regionally specific news, sports, and local color.

As with everything else in TV, the dynamics of the relationship between viewers and local broadcasters is changing as programming options grow exponentially. Broadcasters need to bring discipline and focus to figuring out what viewers want from local stations versus the abundant competition. That’s the thrust of the daylong Station Group Summit to be held Jan. 18 as part of the Natpe 2017 convention.

Sean Compton, president of strategic programming and acquisitions for Tribune Media, and Emerson Coleman, VP of programming for Hearst Television, organized the effort for TV station managers to talk shop, share success stories, and brainstorm programming and marketing strategies for the future.

They've continuously dragged each other in the press since then, but Fox told Williams that they've reached a ceasefire since running into each other at a New York Knicks game. "I walked to him and I said, 'Happy New Year,'" she said. "It is so time for this to be over with, as far as »
