Discovery Communications Hosts Inaugural NewFront Presentation


While folks up and down the coast were just waking up — rubbing their eyes, struggling to their feet and sipping fresh cups of coffee, a Discovery Communications team (me included) was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at Urbo in New York City.

Just over three hours later, Discovery kicked off its first-ever NewFront presentation. The Digital Content NewFronts, hosted by the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB), put the spotlight on online content offerings for advertisers and brands. Take a look at some photos from our event below and check out our Facebook album for more!
