S2E23 - Skip the gatekeeper and go directly to your audience

Welcome to The Early Days Podcast - a show about the hustle, the excitement, and doubts, the successes, and failures, the ups and downs of building a business from scratch.

My name is Marin and with my co-founder Julian, we interview fellow entrepreneurs about their experience of starting businesses. As we are building our own apparel company, and documenting our early days, we wanted to go behind the scenes with other entrepreneurs and find out what their early days were like.

The Early Days Podcast S2E23 - David Michaels

On today's episode, we have David Michaels - senior vice president of the Daytime Emmy Awards at the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. David is a top producer with a successful track record in both live event and television production. He has been instrumental in facilitating the transition from a network to a digital-first broadcast of the Daytime Emmys. I was introduced to David by one of our former guests from last season - Kent Speakman, founder of KNEKT TV - and if you enjoy this episode, I highly recommend you check out the episode with Kent.

In this episode, we cover how David and the Academy think about new distribution channels, the benefits of avoiding traditional gatekeepers in content production, the effect of technology and social media on reaching a broader audience worldwide, and much, much more.

Make sure you check out The Daytime Emmys facebook page and twitter accounts to see first-hand how David and his team are leveraging technology to reach and engage with new audiences.

Thank you for listening and if you enjoy this episode and find value, share it with a trusted friend or colleague. We would also appreciate your love and rating!
