“If you know anything about television, you probably know Alan Wolk.” That’s how Adweek describes the best-selling author of Over The Top. How The Internet Is (Slowly But Surely) Changing The Television Industry.
Slate Editor-in-Chief Jacob Weisberg wrote a stellar review of Over The Top that was featured in a cover story in the New York Review of Books.
It's safe to say that Wolk, who has also been recognized by Wired as one of the Top 20 Thinkers In Social TV and Second Screen has established himself as one of the industry's most influential thought leaders.
As co-founder and editor of TV[R]EV, Wolk has created one of the media industry's go-to sites for discussion around the changes coming from Hollywood, Silicon Valley, and beyond.
Wolk has written and spoken extensively about these upcoming changes and provides his insights on an exclusive basis for clients around the world via Toad Stool Consultants, where he provides bespoke advisory services for clients in the media and entertainment industries. He also serves as Senior Advisor for MediaLink.
A frequent contributor to The Guardian, Slate, Digiday, Variety and other industry news sites, Wolk has been interviewed and quoted by everyone from NPR to The New York Times to CBC National News and recently appeared on a segment of public television's Brian Lehrer Show about the future of TV.
He currently has around 150,000 followers on LinkedIn
