Why Your Show Matters

Posted on January 10, 2012


According to the Web site Frugal Dad there are six companies: GE, NewsCorp, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner and CBS that control 90% of what we read, watch or listen to.

  • They control 70% of cable television.
  • Their movie revenue amounts to $7 billion, two times the box office sales of the next 140 biggest studios combined.
  • 232 media executives control the information diet of 277 million Americans.
  • The song “Mrs. Robinson” has played 6 million times which equates to 32 years of non-stop play.

Any every day one of those companies, or one of their competitors that is struggling to survive against those odds, give you the chance to open the microphone and say whatever you want.

Don’t take it for granted.
