During his keynote, Mosko will be hosted in conversation by Bill Carter, former New York Times television columnist and current contributor to CNN, The Hollywood Reporter and host of a show on SiriusXM satellite radio. Their conversation will address the current television landscape from the perspective of Mosko, the president of a 360-degree global television business at one of Hollywood’s largest studios.

“CCW showcases the latest trends in technology, media and entertainment that will drive the future of broadcast and media forward,” said Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations. “Under Steve’s leadership, Sony Pictures Television has been in the lead in terms of delivering content for new platforms like SVOD services and gaming consoles, in addition to the production and delivery of 4K content. With his extensive experience across all facets of the television industry, Mr. Mosko is guaranteed to be a huge draw for CCW attendees.”
