Liggins III, Patrick Communications organizer Larry Patrick, The CW President Mark Pedowitz, Advanced Television Systems Committee President Emeritus Mark Richer and Premiere Networks President Julie Talbott were named Giants.

Chung shared somewhat about getting a one-on-one with President Nixon amidst his Watergate mess. Doing a full pantomime, they talked about Nixon asking the youthful columnist how a lot of cash they made. “Just remember one thing,” they said Nixon said. “You have to make more money!”

Chung conceded they was somewhat confounded by the trade. “To this day, I don’t know what they said,” said Chung. “And that’s the way it was.”

Juju Chang at that point continued facilitating obligations. “We expect impressions from all of you,” they joked.

They talked about Peter Dunn getting lost at the gigantic CBS Broadcast Center as a child, visiting his dad at work. “Despite everything I get lost at the CBS Broadcast Center,” said Dunn.

They conceded they wasn’t accustomed to being named a goliath. “Being here today makes me feel a couple of inches taller,” said Dunn.

Next up, Holt conceded they “broke a lot of rules along the way,” and did not enjoy a formal journalism education. “I made some spectacular mistakes and miscues,” they said. “Thank God there was no YouTube.”

They asked those in the space to “spot the raw talent” in their shops, and “make them better.”

Pedowitz, as far as it matters for their, said they was certainly not a goliath of anything, aside from, maybe, “a giant pain in the ass” to those he works with. They said they was a little uneasy at the podium, preferring to “let the work speak for itself.”

Pedowitz said their life span in communicating is an advantage. “On the off chance that you get by in this industry long enough,” they stated, “somebody may see you.”
