Ross Levinsohn Joins the Board at DramaFever
Ross Levinsohn is the newest board of director at streaming video startup DramaFever.
The announcement, which was first reported by The Wall Street Journal, comes a month after Levinsohn left his post as chief executive of Guggenheim Digital Media. A veteran digital media executive, Levinsohn was previously the interim CEO at Yahoo, and has held executive roles at News Corp and HBO. He is also on the board of directors at Tribune, Millennial Media, and Zefr.
Launched in 2009, DramaFever started out specializing in bringing Korean programming to audiences in the US. In addition to its own website and apps, the company distributes programming to SVOD platforms such as Netflix and Hulu.
Recently though, DramaFever has begun its expansion into new content verticals. Last December, it struck a deal with Telemundo to license nearly 1,000 hours of programming from the Hispanic network. And soon it will launch new digital channels focused on documentaries and horror content.
Currently, DramaFever says every subscriber watches approximately 50 hours of video per month, with its overall audience (including non-subscribers) being “overwhelmingly” between the ages of 18 and 24.Tags: Board of Directors, DramaFever, Exec Moves, Movers, ross levinsohn
