Members to follow new technology fields
Formally recognizing the recent migration of TV execs into new-media posts, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has launched an interactive media peer group.Its members will regularly hold educational panel discussions and meetings about the booming new technology fields. ATAS members interested in joining the group need to have worked at least two years with an interactive media firm. “The unanimous decision by the board reflects the academy’s commitment to participate in the rapid development of interactive media,” said ATAS chair and CEO Meryl Marshall. Steering the peer group’s selection process will be ATAS exec committee member Jeff Cole and past member of ATAS board of governors Mathew Tombers.
