The Daily Katz – Even the studs match!

Something Great Should Happen now!

By Frank Radice
I worked side by side with Brian Williams as his promotion executive for many years.
It began with his anchor job at WCBS-TV in NYC in the 90’s, through to his time at NBC News and the transition with Tom Brokaw in the early 2000’s. I’ve been on a few of his assignment in the field, from the aftermath of Katrina, to the presidential debates and conventions.
Throughout that time I grew to know and respect Brian as a professional and as a person.
That hasn’t changed.
What has changed is the seriousness of Brian’s current predicament.
If Brian were to leave the anchor chair, NBC News will likely just replace him, maybe with someone younger…maybe not.
But there is a perfect storm that has been brewing for a long time now, and NBC News can take advantage of it and change their newscast entirely.
I believe NBC News has the opportunity to do something great…a real chance to remake television news for the 21st century. One without a single anchor, and a younger, more engaged audience.
I know it will be tough to lose all the pharma, but CBS can find a use for it! And if NBC gets it right, new advertisers will appear.
NBC has a chance to plant a stake in the ground.
How would it work?
Its Real-time, interactive, and social.
It’s YouTube, and streaming, and cool.
It uses different distribution platforms both in and out, it embeds social commentary, and more.
How would it look?
It’s about moving the program forward using the best of today’s technology, while still adhering to the standards of journalism.
I think there are models out there trying to do that.
From “Fusion,” to “TMZ,” and Local shows like, “Chasing,” and, on-line like “Vice,” or “Watchup.”
Possibly using Snapchat, or Instagram.
And yes….they could blow up the time period simply by hiring John Stewart!
The critical layer of oversight and vetting regardless of distribution platform will still need to be in place. Good vetting is essential. But the distribution model has changed, the consumption model has changed,
but the 6:30 network news has not.

Frank Radice is the Expert in Residence at the marketing firm, Definition6.
He has 15 plus years in journalism which including producing at ABC News, “Nightline,” where
He was assigned at times to conflicts in Central America and the Middle East.
He went on to produce programs for ABC News until 1991.

We Meet Again: Frank “The Expert In Residence” Radice vs. Lloyd “The Toxic Avenger” Kaufman

Friday, February 25, 2011 by Frank Radice

Date: 7 April 2011
Subject: MI-6
Location: NOT LONDON!!!!
MI-6 is NOT the British Secret Service…it’s the name of the PROMAX/BDA Game Marketing convention in San Francisco.
That’s right, Gamers need marketing too!
And I will be there representing Definition 6 in my role as Grand Inquisitor, interviewing Lloyd Kaufman, President, CEO, Director and Producer of TROMA Entertainment, America’s longest running independent film production company.
Frank Radice interviews Lloyd Kaufman at MI 6
You may remember such films as “The Toxic Avenger (1-4),” “The Class of Nuke’em High,” and “Sgt. Kabuki-man, NYPD” (and if you don’t, you should) Well..Lloyd made them all and more.
This guy is an institution (and he’s hilarious) and he has a lot to say about the business, marketing, movie-making and on the serious side…Net Neutrality!
Joining us will be Def 6’s own Jon Accarrino, reprising his role as the Social Media DJ, brining to life everything Lloyd and I talk about on stage.
It should be a great time in history.  Hope you can make it there.

Through a content-sharing agreement between Clear Channel Taxi Media and NBC Universal, some 5,000 taxis will air NY10, New York’s Taxi Entertainment Network. The channel will air exclusive content from WNBC, NBC News and NBC Entertainment.

It will roll out during the first half of 2007 as part of the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission’s recent announcement to install passenger information monitors in New York cabs.
