What can we learn from traditional broadcasting such as TV when it comes to Live Video? In today's show, I'm joined by veteran broadcaster, Steve Dotto from Dotto Tech.

Steve has become a great friend over the years, and we've spoken at a few of the same conferences in Ireland and the USA. He also sings, and we've been part of the Social Media Marketing World musical each year.

But I've got Steve on to talk about what lessons we can learn from traditional broadcasting because Steve has had over 16 years experience hosting and producing a nationally syndicated TV show. He now hosts a very popular YouTube channel. Excited to have him on!
