Rice Farmer TV

In the future, Andy Warhol once said, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.

He said that in 1968, and in 1968 that was pretty prescient.

Mass media (three TV networks were considered mass in those days), and they needed content to fill them up. 

The demand for content in 1968 for three networks was about 64,000 hours a year.

Today, YouTube creates a year's worth of video content (in 1968 years) in two hours and ten minutes. 

That voracious appetite for content means that you chow through the really interesting people in about a week. What you have left is, well Reality TV Stars - you need someone! 

But even the technology of cable, which took us from 3 channels to 2,000 is now about to be eclipsed by the Internet, which allows anyone not just to be famous, but to have their own network.

Enter, Rice Farmer TV.

Rice Farmer TV is the brainchild of California rice farmer Matt Sligar, who is both host as well as producer.  

Matt began on YouTube, the incubator of anyone who wants to do this, but has now migrated his content (he has shows like Rice Farmer Wives) to Nashville based RFD-TV - a real (albeit small) cable channel.

You can see Rice Farmer TV here.

Rice Farmer TV may or may not take off big time, but the very fact that Matt (or anyone else for that matter) can successfully launch and run their own network is nothing short of revolutionary. 

If Matt can do it, so can you. 

And if you want to learn HOW to do this, just click on our VJ course - How To Start Your Own TV Network. The reality is that we now live in a world in which if you want to start a TV network, or a career in video, all you have to do is just do it -- and get the right training of course.

See you on RFD-TV (or maybe Netflix).

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.

What TV News Could Be
February 26, 2024

When television was invented in the 1930s, no one knew what TV news was supposed to look like. The medium had never existed before, and so, like Gutenberg half a millennium, prior, the first creators of TV news had to fall back on a medium with which they were familiar, and that was radio.

Maybe scary stories drive ratings… or maybe they don’t.
