Brian Banmiller (pictured), former business editor at KTVU Channel 2, has been named chairman of a new company that will help amateurs sell video that they shoot on their cell phones to TV stations.
The company — called fizwoz (with a lowercase f) — also announced it has tapped former Channel 2 news director Andrew Finlayson for its advisory board. After leaving Channel 2 in 2004, Finlayson headed up digital media for the Fox Television Stations group. Currently he’s a Knight Scholar at Stanford.
Here’s a release about the new company.
