Jason George (Telescope): Mentor


Jason George


This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under "Primary Access."

A veteran of the social and engagement television spaces, Jason has worked at the forefront of audience interactivity and technology for more than two decades. As CEO of Telescope, Jason pivoted the Los Angeles-based company from a services-focused company into a technology platform that is the de-facto standard for social media-meets-television activations. The company’s video streaming platform – Live Studio – pioneered professional live video on social platforms and led to the company being nominated for two Emmy Awards in 2017.

Over the past ten years, Jason inked relationships with all the major Hollywood broadcast networks while also forging technology partnerships with Silicon Valley heavyweights Facebook and Twitter, resulting in Telescope becoming the authority on audience engagement for the highest profile programming in entertainment, sports and event television.

Jason has not only brought the worlds of media and technology closer together, but also brought television fans closer to their favorite series, including NBC’s “The Voice,” and “America’s Got Talent”, and “American Idol” on FOX, as well as major hits on CBS, ABC, Food Network, HGTV, SyFy, Bravo, and Telemundo.
