|Speaking of Spotify… Two other news bites about the Swedish streaming platform:
(1) From The Verge: “Netflix and ESPN team up with Spotify to curate podcasts around their Michael Jordan documentary.”
Fun if you, like me, are enjoying The Last Dance, but it’s really, really interesting if you’re thinking about the implications of the Spotify-curated podcast playlist as an advertising and brand marketing opportunity. I’d keep a close eye on this, particularly if this evolves past being a one-off campaign.
(2) From the New York Times: “David Rhodes, a former Fox News executive who also led CBS News, has quietly begun consulting for Rupert Murdoch’s media empire.”
Mildly interesting to out purposes for the fact that Rhodes had been serving as a consultant for Spotify on matters related to news programming.
