Hello. I’m Eric Peckham—a media/entertainment industry analyst in Los Angeles who writes for TechCrunch, advises companies/VIPs, and occasionally makes investments. What excites me is hunting to uncover contrarian business opportunities and predicting how the media empires of the future will take shape.

Monetizing Media is my email list for sharing resources & analysis with a group of senior executives, startup founders, investors, and others who are working to shape the future of media. (For example, we crowdsourced this database of relevant investors.) You can request to join my email list here:

I am particularly excited about industry realignment in the streaming-first era, applications of AI, new forms of interactive content (like voice interfaces), and audience revenue models like subscriptions and in-app purchases.

I no longer create daily briefings (see: archives) but I’m launching a similar weekly newsletter with TechCrunch very soon.

“In this ever-changing media environment, Monetizing Media is a valuable resource for media executives and entrepreneurs.” – Rick Hess, Managing Partner @ Evolution Media Capital
“I definitely read or skim through every newsletter. Reminds me of my old days of paidContent for its comprehensiveness yet brevity.” – Rafat Ali, Founder/CEO @ Skift
