This week, Tesla CEO Elon Musk purchased Twitter for $44-billion and has plans to take the company private. With Musk now owning one of the more influential platforms, many are becoming aware of the entrepreneur if they hadn’t known about him already.

As a result, Fox News is attempting to inform those who might not know who Musk is as they’ll be running a special “Who Is Elon Musk?” on their streaming platform on one of the richest men on the planet. 

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade will host the special, which airs on Thursday, April 28th, and includes interviews with FOX Business’ Stuart Varney and Liz Claman, Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon, and Heritage Foundation Fellow Kara Frederick.

“The special will explore the life of Elon Musk – from building electric cars and spaceships, buying Twitter, and dating Amber Heard, the richest man in the world always makes news,” the press release said, which was obtained by Barrett Media

Upon purchasing the company, Musk wants the platform to be better than ever, both on the free speech aspect and improving certain features. 

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said in a statement

“I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spambots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential — I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”

It is no secret that cable TV has seen the age of its viewers continue to rise. But the entire picture is coming into view when juxtaposed against other mediums like radio and podcast users.

A new report from Amplifi Media shows that the median age of cable news viewers is 70. MSNBC is 70, Fox News is 69, and CNN is 67. That median age means that more than half the viewers are actually older than 70 years old.

Network television isn’t a much brighter picture. In primetime, the median age is 64. FOX has the youngest number at 49.5.

However, the median age of podcast consumers comes in at 34.

Steve Goldstein, Founder and CEO of Amplifi Media, believes the drastically younger demographics of the medium make it an ideal platform for advertisers.

“The ascent of podcasting signals a shift towards on-demand content consumption that aligns with the lifestyles and preferences of younger generations,” wrote Goldstein. “We live in an on-demand world, and while other media are adjusting (think streaming apps and YouTube), podcasting has three not-so-secret ingredients that traditional media struggle to match: intimacy, flexibility, and loyalty, which makes podcasting an ideal platform for engaging storytelling, niche topics, and fresh takes.”

The rise of artificial intelligence in media has been a focus for several years. But the use of AI in advertising is just getting started, and a new study suggests it will influence the space in the years to come.

GroupM has released its This Year Next Year forecast. In its projections, it believes that AI will be a prominent tool in advertising optimization. By the end of 2024, it forecasts that 69.5% of all advertising revenue will be AI-aided, while that number is expected to grow to over 90% by 2029.

The company also projects that AI-generated content in advertisements will account for 1.6% of all commercials in 2024. GroupM believes that figure is likely to grow to 10.7% by the end of the decade.

While the organization forecasts an increase of $365.9 billion, up 5.8% compared to previous projections, it shows a 1.5% drop in revenue for terrestrial radio, according to RadioInk.
