It is no secret that the media industry has undergone rapid change since the coming of the digital media age. New media—comprised of young digital publications—has been absolutely slaying old media, leading industry pundits to exclaim that print is dead.

Steve Hansen, CEO of Spin Media, has been a prominent figure even prior to the rise of digital publications, being involved in the sale of Geocities to Yahoo! for five billion dollars in 1999 along with his his high-profile positions at Universal and other leading corporations.

Hansen has a story that is quite distinct from the typical bootstrapping entrepreneurial stories often highlighted on Elite Daily. Rather than constructing corporations from the ground up, Steve’s expertise lies in his ability to remold established companies to an extent that they are profitable and efficient. But working at the “C” level is not nearly as simple as many might assume. Steve accurately illustrates a behind-the-scenes look into the life of a media executive as he reveals how he evaluates potential opportunities for himself and his company, providing an analysis of the emerging media space.

In this exclusive video interview with Elite Daily’s Stephen Edwards, Steve Hansen details the extreme responsibility and commitment required of a CEO, provides an industry insider’s insight into the emerging digital media space, and brings us through his experiences as a high-level executive at some of America’s most recognizable entities.
