“If you know anything about television, you probably know Alan Wolk.” That’s how Adweek describes the co-founder of leading media analyst firm TVREV and best-selling author of Over The Top. How The Internet Is (Slowly But Surely) Changing The Television Industry.
It's safe to say that Wolk, a much sought-after writer, speaker and consultant, whose book is used as a textbook at a number of top business schools, has established himself as one of the industry's most influential thought leaders. By focusing on the intersection of CTV and advertising, Wolk—who coined the acronym FAST (free ad-supported streaming TV) and his TVREV colleagues have helped make the firm one of the media industry’s go-to resources for both analysis and consulting as it attempts to process the changes coming from Hollywood, Silicon Valley, Madison Avenue and beyond.
A contributing writer at Forbes, NextTV, Fierce Video and other industry news sites, Wolk has been interviewed and quoted by everyone from NPR to The New York Times and is a regular guest on Cheddar TV, offering expert opinion on breaking stories in the media industry."
