VideoInk Welcomes Sahil Patel as Editorial Director, Vet TV Critic Allen Weiner as Web TV Critic

/ Jun 19, 2013


It’s been an amazing past couple months since we launched in Early April! Talk about a hot industry! Congrats to all of you who have launched programming, locked financing, been acquired, stirred the pot and/or made massive gains in your businesses. You’re the reason we’re excited to be covering this industry and the online video business.

Alas, excellent coverage wouldn’t be possible without excellent writers, which is why VideoInk is particularly excited to welcome Sahil Patel to the team as our new Editorial Director and well-known Gartner analyst and TV critic, Allen Weiner, as our resident Web TV Critic.

In his respective role, Sahil will now oversee editorial coverage for our publication, from daily news breaks and reporting to custom features and special issues. He will also manage the fast growing VideoInk editorial team, which includes Liz Shannon Miller as Editor-at-Large, Chris Dignes as Staff Writer, and our contingency of contributors and columnists.

Most of you know Sahil from Cynopsis Digital, where he served as the editor of Cynopsis Digital over the last two years covering the online video and digital/social TV industries via a widely read daily newsletter for agency, network, and industry executives.

Needless to say, @SizPatel knows a thing or two about the business of online video especially as it correlates to the broadcast, television and media buying communities.

Allen Weiner is a media industry veteran having worked in TV, radio and publishing for more than three decades. He was a highly respected TV critic and columnist for the Everett Herald for nine years writing about the Seattle and national TV scene. He is a well-known technology analyst covering the publishing, commerce and content marketing space.

We are thrilled to welcome Sahil and Allen, along with their analytical minds, to the team. Sahil can be reached at [email protected]; Allen at [email protected] and you should, of course, follow them on Twitter – @SizPatel, @AllenWeiner
