Pal Om Malik talked with us today about the launch of NewTeeVee Station, his service for finding and presenting the best of web video to viewers. Om envisions the target audience as the universe of people who have a few minutes after lunch and just want to veg-out with a quick, but quality video clip. NewTeeVee Station is stuffed full of short 5 and 10 minute videos, selected by the editors.
Perhaps the most dramatic part of the conversation was toward the end when I asked Om what it was like to be a media owner, rather than a journalist. In the company of the friends on the line, he talked about his heart attack earlier this year, and how it had impacted his business and his management style. It was truly a remarkable conversation.
On the line: Hudson Barton, Martyn Davies, Howard Thaw, Dan York, Dameon Welch-Abernathy, Jim Courtney, Jeanette fisher, Adam Somer, James Body, Mike Pruyn, Frank Abrams, and Giga Om.
