A Plethora Of Growth Sources For TV

According to a panel of high-level executives gathered Thursday morning at the freshly renamed Kagan Media Summit, TV industry growth will come from a number of sources — including private equity, core and emerging advertising categories, a huuuuge bump in 2020 political dollars, and digital expansion and the promise that ATSC 3.0 holds. At the session, Mike Nelson, EVP-CFO of Fox Television Stations, said his company is interested in buying stations that fit the group’s profile, a top-25 market with a sports presence. “At the right price, Fox is very much interested,” he said.
