NEW YORK — The individual who oversees Hearst Television has been selected to serve as the Television Industry Chair for the broadcast media industry’s most prestigious leadership conference, Forecast 2023, scheduled for November 16 at the Harvard Club in Midtown Manhattan.
Jordan Wertlieb will serve in the role, joining Honorary Chair Bob Pittman, Chairman/CEO of iHeartMedia; and Radio Chair Greg Ashlock, iHeartMedia’s Multiplatform Group CEO.
Forecast 2023, which is celebrating 20 years, is now open for registration.
“We are thrilled to have Jordan Wertlieb serve as TV Chair for this year’s conference,” says Deborah Parenti, President/Publisher, Radio Ink and Radio + Television Business Report. “He is tremendously admired and respected throughout the broadcast industry, and his insights will be of great benefit in shaping the 2023 Forecast agenda.”
Wertlieb says, “The past two years have been reaffirming for the broadcast industry as radio and television stations throughout the country continue to serve their local communities, providing news, information, entertainment, and the very best advertising proposition for businesses. Broadcasters are the first informers throughout the pandemic, shine a light on the issues of racial injustice and inequity, and bring transparency to geopolitical forces shaping our world. Our relationship with listeners, viewers and online audiences is rooted in the highest level of trust and continues to be the very best environment for advertisers and their brands.
“I am honored to join Greg Ashlock as a co-chair for Forecast 2023 and this robust program focused on the future of the broadcast industry, its innovation, creativity, and the mission to serve for the betterment of our local communities and our country.”
Forecast 2023 is the only conference of its kind, providing participants the opportunity to discuss revenue expectations, focus on significant issues, and meet the trendsetters shaping and analyzing the future facing both radio and television broadcasters in a joint setting.
In 2021, Radio Ink was joined by Radio + Television Business Report in co-presenting the prestigious conference to both radio and television broadcasters. The conference is followed by the Broadcast Leadership reception, considered one of broadcasting’s top networking events and honoring Radio Ink’s “40 Most Powerful People in Radio” and Radio + Television Business Report’s “Top Broadcast Television Leaders.” Registration for Forecast includes admittance to the reception. A complete agenda and other details about the conference will be announced over the coming months.
