The Experience

The television industry is in the midst of an enormous change. Cross-platform opportunities, new metrics, economic challenges and digital transitions have remade the way content is developed and delivered. To take best advantage of where things are and where they’re going requires industry leaders with instinct and imagination.


Among the top crop of up-and-coming media figures, executives and managers, webmasters, journalists and deal-makers, folks who help create, market and sell what viewers are watching on screens big and small. They’re a cross-section of leaders who are driven to make subtle changes to the big picture.


The members of B&C’s annual Next Wave class have a few things in common. They have passion that others might have but don’t channel in the same productive ways. Vision that others might have but don’t necessarily put into action. And an ability to understand how best to traverse the gulf between the bottom line and limitless potential.


Join us as we award and celebrate this Next Wave of Leaders on Friday, June 16th at the Stewart Hotel in NYC!
