About Lost Remote
What’s social TV? It’s anything that connects people through television, from engaging viewers via Twitter to introducing Facebook fans to new shows. From “second screen” iPad apps that enhance TV viewing to social guides that let you see what your friends are watching. Media analyst Jack Myers predicts social TV will become a $30 billion dollar business by 2020.
Just like social media is changing the world of publishing, it will soon change the world of TV.
Lost Remote is the first and largest industry site dedicated to social TV coverage and analysis. In fact, we were the first site on the web to regularly write about social TV. Today, thousands of TV execs, producers, marketers, social media experts and social TV entrepreneurs read Lost Remote — not to mention execs from Twitter, Facebook, Google and Microsoft.
“Lost Remote is doing an incredible job breaking news in the social TV space and providing more in-depth case study-like examples,” explains Mike Proulx, SVP at Hill Holliday and co-author of the book, Social TV. “Cory is the most heavily-quoted person in our book.”
The site was founded by Cory Bergman (@corybe), who has a long resume working in the TV and online news industry, from NBC News to msnbc.com. Natan Edelsburg (@twatan) and Jenny McCoy (@jen_mccoy) are Lost Remote’s writers, and Steve Safran, Paul Balcerak and Kim Wilson contribute to the site.
We began as one the first blogs on the web 12 years ago.
