Ross Brand is a former radio on-air personality, reporter and show host who fell in love with broadcasting again after spending a few days in October 2015 watching shows on Blab. Ross immediately started the @livestreamuni Twitter account to share news and upcoming livestream broadcasts. 500 followers connected to @livesreamuni within the first eight days.
Given the passion for the platform early adopters were displaying, Ross created LivestreamUniverse.com to highlight those broadcasters and brands producing high-quality content via livestream platforms.
Leading livestreamers Rachel Moore and Jonathan Tripp discuss Ross’ role in supporting and engaging with the livestream community:
