About Jon Burk
On #LivestreamStars with Ross Brand, Jon Burk of Roker Media discussed the challenges facing livestreaming content creators trying to monetize their live video shows through advertising and sponsorships. He said that Roker Media is now approaching livestreaming as a utility to promote and support other media programming rather than the content for destination viewing on social media.
We also covered the future of livestreaming events such as the New Fronts and Summit Live, a potential second season for Mario Armstrong’s Never Settle Show and what it’s like working with legendary broadcasting personality Al Roker.
