Internet pioneer Jon Steinberg, former president and chief operating officer of BuzzFeed and CEO of Daily Mail North America, is looking to disrupt the cable industry the way cable disrupted network news. He’s raised $3 million for his first foray as founding entrepreneur for his venture, called Cheddar TV.
Yesterday, Cheddar launched on Facebook Live, and I was excited to join part of the ride to discuss the 2016 election. Check out a three minute recap of Cheddar’s first live show: Space X, Skimm Founders (Carly Zakin, Danielle Weisberg Heller), Facebook earnings preview with Robert Peck from SunTrust, and Ricky Van Veen on internet media.
