Medford, N.J. — July 3, 2023 — Streaming Media announced today that Evan Shapiro, self-described “media cartographer” whose incisive data presentation, analysis, and commentary is mapping out the future of the streaming media industry and overall entertainment sector, has signed on as host, moderator, and MC of the next Streaming Media Connect virtual event, which runs 22-24 August 2023.

“Evan proved a galvanising presence at Streaming Media East 2023,” remarked Streaming Media VP & Editor-in-Chief Steve Nathans-Kelly. “His standing-room-only ‘YES, AND…’ closing keynote typified the transformative effect his insightfully curated media industry data, potent visualisations, and no-holds-barred analysis is having in our industry. Even if it’s not always what we want to hear about where we are and where we’re going, it’s what we need to hear. The only thing better than following Evan Shapiro’s sharp and incisive daily (and then some) LinkedIn posts is catching him live. Evan will be a great addition to Streaming Media Connect, elevating our already star-studded program to the realm of must-see TV.”
