According to Deadline, tense negotiations led to a “mid-range eight-figure payoff” and agreement not to talk about his departure.

The Global Vide Measurement released a report on the challenges facing media owners and advertisers during the 2021 upfronts season. “Discovering Audiences On Social Video” offers reasons why social video can be used to the advantage of advertisers, including:
* Changes and challenges in the pay TV market: The decline in linear TV viewing across all demographics except adults 65 and older has been dramatic, especially for teens and adults 18-34, who are watching less than half the linear TV than they were in 2010.
* Complementary audiences for social video and linear TV: Traditional linear TV companies have made national scale a major part of what’s offered to advertisers. For these companies, across all owned properties, social video offers 75% of the reach that linear provides, and for Disney, nearly the same reach.
