Fusion CEO Isaac Lee to Bloomberg TV: ‘We want to be a brand that lives wherever the audience is going to live’

While at the Aspen Ideas Festival Fusion CEO Isaac Lee spoke to Bloomberg TV about the network’s approach, its audience and its point of view. “Fusion TV seems like an idea whose time should have come many years ago,” Bloomberg anchor Erik Schatzker said. 

“I don’t know why it took so long — beats me, but it makes a lot of sense,” Lee said. “There are 77 million millennials now and 20-25% of them are Hispanics, it is an undeniable growth… what you cannot do is take away the fact that the influence of Hispanics in this generation is huge.”
When asked about Fusion’s approach to reaching millennials Lee said: “We don’t just have linear TV. Fusion is a media brand. Our efforts in mobile are huge. In digital are huge. We want to be a brand that lives wherever the audience is going to live… at the end of the day, they do watch television that is relevant to them.”
