Internet TV company and streaming app creator, Syncbak, announced today that Ed Wilson, a respected industry executive who has served as President of a series of top media companies including CBS Enterprises, NBC Enterprises, FOX Television Network, and Tribune Broadcasting, has joined Syncbak’s Board of Directors. Wilson is currently a sought-after independent media industry advisor, working with former CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric on the launch of her new syndicated talk show and production company, among other projects.
“I am thrilled to have Ed Wilson join our board,” said Jack Perry, Syncbak’s Founder and CEO. “He’s an icon in the world of television. At this critical juncture, I can’t think of anyone better to help us move the company forward and underscore the distinction between Syncbak and other less broadcaster-friendly solutions in the market.”
“Local broadcasters, networks, and studios all want to monetize their content across every distribution platform,” said Ed Wilson. “Syncbak understands content owners’ needs and fulfills them on the mobile platform via its tested, proven and patented technology.”
Mr. Wilson joins Ed Scanlon (former head of NBC), Brian Brady (immediate past chair of the Fox Network affiliate board), John Pappajohn, (Investor) and Brian Thompson (Equity Dynamics) on Syncbak’s Board of Directors. Syncbak was founded in 2009 by Jack Perry. The company’s internet TV platform and mobile app distribute live broadcast TV on connected devices. Syncbak’s strategic investors include the National Association of Broadcasters and the Consumer Electronics Association as well as major broadcast groups and TV executives. Syncbak’s technology is currently deployed at 50 stations, owned by sixteen broadcast groups, reaching 25 million households.
