Variety featured law professor Bennett Gershman in "Harvey Weinstein: What to Expect at the Rape Trial That Will Decide His Future"

“He’ll come into the courtroom with a black mark on him.

"Variety" featured Pace University’s Lubin School of Business marketing professor Larry Chiagouris in "Disney is open to running Spanish language ads on English language TV"

"Variety" featured Pace University’s Lubin School of Business marketing professor Larry Chiagouris in "Disney is open to running Spanish language ads on English language TV"

...There’s good reason for Disney to woo Spanish-language advertising. Marketers put approximately $5.7 billion into Spanish-language TV in 2018, according to Kantar, a tracker of ad spending That figure compares to $5.6 billion in 2017 and $6 billion in 2016. Among the biggest supporters of the medium are telecommunications advertisers and auto marketers, including Dish Network, Sprint and Nissan.

And yet, advertisers seeking Spanish-speaking customers aren’t likely to abandon Spanish-language outlets like Univision or NBCUniversal’s Telemundo. “Advertising in Spanish is still most efficiently done via Spanish language programming,” says Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business.

"Variety" featured Lubin Professor Larry Chiagouris in "Trump Era Puts New Spotlight on Cable News Daytime Roster"

"Variety" featured Lubin Professor Larry Chiagouris in "Trump Era Puts New Spotlight on Cable News Daytime Roster"

...Societal changes brought on by new technology could continue to fuel daytime news audiences for years to come, suggests Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University. “There are more workers working from home to access the programming. In fact, the size of the work-at-home audience is larger than most cable audiences,” he says. “And in addition, technology has further enlarged the size of potential audiences working in offices, schools and factories.”

With all that in mind, the cable networks can’t be caught unawares, says Jennifer Thomas, an assistant professor of broadcast journalism at Howard University and a former CNN and HLN producer. “News organizations must react to the thirst for more information and keep the public aptly informed, which is why we see more Washington experts on the news during times when softer news may have previously dominated,” she says. In the future, daytime may get even more intense. Thomas expects to see “more in-depth investigative reporting in the newscasts as opposed to broadcasts with mainly talking heads.”

Sciutto’s national-security experience will likely add depth to CNN’s midmorning program, where he’s paired with Harlow, who has a background in business reporting. Even early in the morning, CNN needs ready access to all of its in-house expertise and contributors. “The news cycle we are in,” Bass says, “continues on hyperspeed.”
