Media executive Michael Jay Soloman has been appointed chairman of the board of BEOND.TV, bringing more than 50 years of experience in the worldwide media and content-distribution business to the company.
He was co-founder and chairman/CEO of the U.S. television syndication and international distribution giant Telepictures. Solomon later became president and board member of Lorimar Telepictures. Following an acquisition by Warner Bros., Solomon became president of Warner Bros. International Television. Most recently, he has spearheaded multiple industry advancements through his company, Solomon Entertainment Enterprises.
A global digital distribution platform combined with original syndicated broadcast content, BEOND.TV is led by Carlos and Lisa, a news-talk program currently airing in Los Angeles. The show’s hosts, Southland natives and morning anchors Carlos Amezcua and Lisa Remillard, incorporate issue-driven discussions with lively and fun content.
“We are delighted to have Michael on board as we look to the future of media in this new landscape,” said BEOND.TV’s president, Amie Martin. “His leadership will be invaluable as we continue to tell the stories of Southern Californians while creating disruptive technologies and utilizing traditional media.”
Solomon added: “I accepted their offer to become chairman because BEOND.TV has a vision and a purpose that perfectly aligns with my experience.
