Bloomberg Media launches new TV/video series
Bloomberg Media announced Wednesday the launch of a new television and video show series called “Big Problems. Big Thinkers.”
The show will will air globally on Bloomberg.com and Bloomberg Television.
Each episode focuses on one key issue: climate change, the economy, measuring success, foreign affairs, media and political paralysis
Broadcast journalist Terre Blair is behind “Big Problems. Big Thinkers.” As the creator, producer and interviewer, she spent years probing the thinking of an extraordinary group of leaders on issues ranging from the impact of climate change to the definition of success, the importance of morality and what constitutes happiness.
“This project is an exciting way to reach new audiences and provide our viewers with smart, thought-provoking content that extends beyond day-to-day market activity, yet still has an impact on the business and financial worlds in which they live,” said Jacki Kelley, chief operating officer of Bloomberg Media, in a series. “It’s rare that you hear from global leaders such as these on how they would tackle the toughest questions of our time.”
Cut from hours of interview footage, “Big Problems. Big Thinkers.” began as an academic research project for Blair, who wanted to understand the ethical and moral guidelines that would help society confront the challenges of the future. The questions she posed often coalesced around the six issues the series will focus on.
