Video Interview with Blue Ant Media’s Ward Platt

Ward Platt, CEO of the global networks and kids’ business at Blue Ant Media, talks to World Screen about the challenges and opportunities in rolling out the group’s video destinations across the globe.

With its acquisition of David Haslingden’s RACAT Group in May of this year, Canada’s Blue Ant Media dramatically expanded its presence in the Asia Pacific. The deal brought to the company New Zealand’s NHNZ and Singapore’s Beach House Pictures, among other production companies, as well as the ZooMoo educational preschool channel. The venture then expanded its portfolio further with the purchase of the RTL CBS channels in Asia. Blue Ant enlisted Fox and National Geographic channels veteran Ward Platt to run its new global networks and kids’ business as CEO.
