Wave's Social Empire

Wave's Social Empire

August 8, 2018

Club Trill
The world’s first trillion dollar company is quietly investing in talent and tech that may signal a foray into sports content. Meanwhile, Endeavor wants to keep it true and real for niche sports by being their ESPN (not to be confused with The Ocho: ESPN’s own ESPN for niche sports).

All Eyez On Me
Welcome everybody to the Wild Wild West of sports gambling coverage. This Chernin-backed publisher is tapping into a subculture of fans through talent like @World_Wide_Wob while other networks ask fans How Do U Want It (your sports betting coverage)?

Fitness Test
Scooter Braun has a knack for finding talent. He’s pulling up a chair next to Peloton (and it’s brand new $550M) at the hottest table in town, ready to usher fitness into the digital age in the form of a Hollywood-style production.

‎VP, Licensing
