If there is one thing that can’t be more clear than what we have seen over the last decade (the last year for that matter) is the evolution of media, news, and our consumption of such. Mobile technology has truly given us the world at our very fingertips. The world can change while the rest look on in real time. Additionally, the creation of said media has never been easier. With the previously mentioned mobile tech now serving as high definition, easy to use cameras, and the higher level gear becoming more user friendly and financially accessible, anyone can truly be a creator…and have done so. With the likes of video and podcasting sites; grassroots information movements have taken over. This week on The Malliard Report, Jim welcomes a guest that has watched it unfold first hand. Joining Jim this week is Chris Van Vliet to talk new media, Oscars, sports, and so much more.
“Chris Van Vliet is a 4-time Emmy award winning TV Host, Entertainment Reporter and YouTuber based in Miami, FL. He has traveled the world reporting from events like the Oscars, Grammys and the Cannes Film Festival. You may be familiar with the interviews that Chris posts on YouTube but to just call them “interviews” doesn’t seem fair because they are so much more than that. Chris dives deep into interesting topics with his trademark conversational approach that makes it feel like two old friends catching up. This is the case when it’s a wrestling superstar like John Cena, The Rock or Hulk Hogan or a Hollywood A-Lister like Oprah Winfrey, Tom Cruise or Will Smith.”
Chris is certainly a fantastic guest, with a lot of experience. You can find his show over on YouTube, follow him on all social media platforms (@ChrisVanVliet) or keep up to date with all of latest over on his website chrisvanvliet.com.
