“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, and Wolk’s tome is currently being used as a textbook at a number of colleges and business schools, including USC’s Marshall School of Business.
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 lead analyst of TV[R]EV, Wolk has created one of the media industry's go-to sites for understanding the changes coming from Hollywood, Silicon Valley, Madison Avenue and beyond. Wolk has written and spoken extensively about these upcoming changes and their effect on television’s advertising ecosystem. He shares his insights on an exclusive basis for clients around the world via TV[R]EV’s consulting services, which provides bespoke advisory services for clients in the media and entertainment industries. Wolk also serves as Senior Advisor for MediaLink.
A frequent contributor to and columnist for Slate, Forbes, Decider 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.
