Online video and media expert Anthony Soohoo joins Revision3’s board of directors

June 21st, 2011 at 01:00 by Jim Louderback in Announcements

Hey everyone, I have some more “corporate” news for you today!

I’m excited to announce that we’ve just added online video and media expert Anthony Soohoo to Revision3’s board of directors. Anthony is a true media visionary with extensive experience building and scaling video based businesses like ours.

Until recently, Anthony was the SVP and GM of Entertainment at CBS Interactive. For over three years, he built up and managed CBS Interactive’s entertainment division, which included such awesome franchises as CBS.com, TV.com, CBS Audience Network, CHOW, Chowhound, UrbanBaby and the CBS Web Original Studios. Under his leadership, CBS.com went from the #4 to the #1 online TV network property and became the #1 premium content property above ESPN, The New York Times and The Huffington Post. In 2009, Anthony was selected by The Hollywood Reporter’s Digital Power List recognizing the top 50 executives leading the charge in new media content.

Previously, Anthony was Vice President and General Manager at Yahoo. If you really want his full career details, you can check out his impressive bio here (spoiler alert: he’s got an MBA from Harvard Business School too, but we won’t hold that against him).

Now the cool stuff – here are a few fun facts about Anthony that make him perfect for our Board:

* He’s a tech geek at heart. He learned to program on an Apple IIe and built quite a business repairing Macs and PCs in college.

* He’s a true video addict. He’s been known to watch 20 hours of programming in one sitting (I assume he got up to use the bathroom now and then)

* His favorite hobbies are stalking gourmet food trucks in the wild, P90x exercising (apparently to work off that food truck excess) and watching Ferris Bueller over and over and over again just like a 3 year old kid with Finding Nemo.

* His favorite Revision3 shows are Epic Meal Time, A.V. Talk, and Scam School

TechnoBuffaloIt’s my great pleasure to announce the launch of Technobuffalo on Revision3. Jon Rettinger is a long-time YouTube star (Jon4Lakers) with a strong following of tech fans. He’s been breaking stories and unboxing products for many years now. Now he’s launching a new series with Revision3 based on his popular new website, technobuffalo.com. The show isn’t just a rehash or aggregate of information from other websites. Each episode of TechnoBuffalo provides informed commentary, context and in-depth analysis on all things tech from some of Technobuffalo’s best and brightest editors.

You can expect product and app reviews, gossip from the tech world and analysis of news from this group of experts. The show will release three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I think you’re going to like the hosts of the show and really trust what they have to say each week. Jon has diligently built up a reputation as a thought leader in the space and we’re thrilled to have his team joining us.

Please help me in welcoming Technobuffalo to the Revision3 family by checking out the show and subscribing for future episodes!
