Moderator of the “The Entertainment Ecosystem” panel Kristen O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer at Time Warner Inc.

“While certainly there’s sweeping change…as much as audiences are changing in how they consume content, what we do know is that they still love content.”

So said Kristen O’Hara, Chief Marketing Officer at Time Warner Inc., while adroitly moderating a powerful panel peopled by digital all-stars titled “The Entertainment Ecosystem” held at the Chief Digital Officer Summit at the Time Warner Center in New York City on April 23, 2014.

“There’s also a renaissance happening, particularly in the television industry.”

O’Hara pointed to positive trends accompanying the recent changes in the industry, including more scripted series being created, more distribution outlets than ever before, and the migration of talent from the silver screen to television, as was the case with Kevin Spacey and the Netflix series House of Cards.
