Houston Business Show Develops Television Programming

Forgive me for blowing our own horn, but we are excited to announce the creation of our new "Movers and Shakers" segment on the Houston Manufactuers TV Show, produced by Phonoscope.

In addition to being seen on television in thousands of offices throughout downtown Houston, this program is also seen by thousands more online. In fact, I recently visited with the show's host, Robbie Adair, who said they received thousands of unique visitors to the show's page in the last few days alone. The numbers are comparable to the audience of many popular radio shows in town.

The future of TV is online, in my opinion. In fact, I like to call YouTube one of the first TV networks designed for the 21st century. The web, in the words of Fox's Rupert Murdoch, allows people to get what they want when they want it. Also, the Internet's increasing speed and computer screen quality make it better than the TV in many respects. If websites are going to remain relevant, they are going to need quality video content, which was a goal we had for the Houston Business Media Group in 2007 and was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with these fine partners.

We expect our video programming to expand in the weeks to come as we strive to offer more programming. We consider this a valuable tool to convey information to our growing audience.
