Zenith Media’s Vendetti To Keynote TV2020
Neil Vendetti, president of investment at Zenith, will address advertisers’ critical objectives in a rapidly evolving and disrupted media ecosystem in the keynote interview at TVNewsCheck’s fourth annual TV2020: Monetizing the Future in New York.
Vendetti will look at what advertisers want from media beyond the broadcasting sphere in the interview, to be conducted by TVNewsCheck’s Special Projects Editor Michael Depp at 9:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at New York’s Javits Center.
“Broadcasters need to know what their advertisers are looking for, and the industry’s rampant disruption has made that more of a moving target than ever,” said Kathy Haley, TVNewsCheck’s publisher and co-founder. “At Zenith, Neil has an enviable vantage point in tracking those objectives and measuring the impact of platforms like OTT and digital on advertisers’ goals.”
Vendetti is a 16-year veteran at Zenith, where he has identified and developed campaigns for very distinct and hard-to-reach consumers. Under his leadership, Zenith’s national broadcast department became its national video department, and the company now negotiates top-tier online video alongside its broadcast buys. Prior to Zenith, Vendetti was EVP, managing director of national video activation on the Toyota Motor Sales team. He is a graduate of Bucknell University.
