The multiyear strategic agreement between two of the largest, topically diverse networks in the industry, will include all-go-to market activity and the potential for future collaboration on new programming.
“We are thrilled to be working with Forever Dog, a network that perfectly aligns with Slate’s voice and values,” said Charlie Kammerer, Slate’s President and CRO. “Like Slate’s, Forever Dog’s audience is smart, passionate and cares deeply about news and culture. And the network offers a robust inventory of engaging, hilarious and gutsy shows that we’re excited to take to market.”
