In 2016, The Hollywood Reporter led a push into video with the creation of a Facebook Live team that is slated to produce over 1,000 Facebook Live broadcasts totaling more than 250 hours of live video this year.
Billboard, which is The Hollywood Reporter’s music-focused sister outlet, launched its own video news series in November, which saw 25 million views in its first seven weeks. Billboard News is currently on track to garner over 250 million video views in its first year of activity.
With Billboard’s recent announcement of the acquisition of Spin Media and its portfolio of high-profile music brands Spin, Vibe and Stereogum, Billboard is primed to see a significant expansion of its Billboard News audience.
