In this episode of the Media Clips Podcast, GHJ Profit Participation Services Practice Leader Ilan Haimoff welcomes back USC Professor and Director of USC Annenberg’s Center for the Digital Future Dr. Jeff Cole to examine the state of media.

Ilan and Jeff discuss the looming WGA strike, shifts in the streaming market, the rise of alternative profit participation models like Artists Equity and the threat (or opportunity) in AI.

Jeff founded and continues to direct the World Internet Project, which has examined how Internet usage and technology affect human behavior for over two decades. In 1999, then-Vice President Al Gore praised Jeff as a “true visionary providing the public with information on how to understand the impact of media.”
