Next|VIDEO Keynote Luncheon: Going Digital with PBS
October 1, 1 to 3 p.m.
Matt Graham, Director of Content Development, PBS
Founded in 2012, PBS Digital Studios has redefined what it means to be a network in today's connected world. In this presentation, you'll hear how the company changed its own culture to embrace the ongoing evolution.
