CASBAA collaborating with Indonesian Broadcasting Commission on regulatory policy
CASBAA is working with the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI) on discussions of modern regulatory policy. In a Jakarta meeting with CASBAA representatives on January 16, KPI Chairman Yuliandre Darwis invited CASBAA and member companies to attend/speak at an International Conference in late February that KPI would organize for the Islamic Broadcasting Regulatory Authorities Forum (IBRAF). The KPI Chairman also welcomed CASBAA’s plans to organize an in-country seminar in Jakarta on TV regulation later this year; the two organizations are now exploring possible dates.

CASBAA Next – Ask Me Anything
Beatles or Stones…Coke or Pepsi…boxers or briefs? These were just some of the questions that were covered in the first AMA (Ask Me Anything) hosted by the CASBAA Next Committee. On January 19, CASBAA Next members had a meeting/webinar with Turner’s President of Asia Pacific, Ricky Ow, for a private discussion. This new format proved very insightful as the Next members explored Ricky’s perspective on the state of the industry, where the business is heading, Turner’s plans and Ricky’s career advice for Next members. More AMA’s are planned for future Next meetings. BTW, only one question stumped him, Swiftie or Belieber?
