What’s the future of television? It might be online. Glenn Beck’s new online-only show, GBTV, kicked off with a bang to the tune of 230,000 paying subscribers — before any episodes were released. That’s more than Oprah’s entire channel netted in June, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Beck will be speaking on his new ventures at IGNITION: Future of Media, Business Insider’s executive conference taking place November 30 to December 1, 2011, in New York. IGNITION will bring together key stakeholders and executives to discuss what’s happening now, what’s coming next, and how it will affect your business. The conference is produced by Business Insider, one of the fastest-growing digital-media companies in the world, and hosted by Henry Blodget, Business Insider’s founder and CEO.
