Roy Sekoff of HuffPost Live: ‘We Set Out to Expand the Definition of Social TV’

roy“I wake up most mornings simultaneously terrified and inspired,” Roy Sekoff, President and co-creator of HuffPost Live, told Lost Remote.

Why? Because the TV and digital video landscape is changing at “an almost comically rapid pace,” and HuffPost Live is at the forefront of this revolution.

In just the last year, HuffPost Live, which airs from 10am– 6pm ET, Monday through Friday, has seen 86% growth in video views, 287% growth in page views, and in May, won its second consecutive Webby as the Best News and Information Channel.

Where more and more networks are scrambling to create shorter, bite-sized news segments for shorter, bite-sized attention spans, HuffPost Live is seeing average visits of close to 20 minutes long. Every discussion that takes place on HuffPost Live takes place in real time and covers topics ranging from politics, activism and international news to sports, lifestyle, celebrity and everything in between. It is citizen journalism that mixes the objective with the subjective, and more than 22,500 people from 100 countries have been on-air guests, sharing their opinions and expertise via Google Hangouts.
