Virtual learning during the pandemic can present many challenges. Here are 8 apps, websites, and tools, from Discord to Otter, that can help.
“You have to get all this right, you have to!” says model and musician Roy Brown when I ask about clones – the queer subculture so prominent in the 1970s and 80s, but oddly missing from Channel 4 mega hit, It’s A Sin.Clones were such a fixture of the club and bar scene of the period that artist Mark Wardel – who was also partying at the time – reckons “maybe 90% of the people in Heaven nightclub around 1979/1980 had that clone look.” The fact they are largely absent from It’s A Sin’s many party scenes has not gone unnoticed by older viewers of the Russell T Davies show. “I’ve spoken to a lot of friends who were around on that scene at the time and pretty much everybody said: ‘where were all the clones in this programme?’” Wardel tells HuffPost UK.“It was a jarring note for people who were around. We didn’t recognise it as a scene we knew,” he says of the nightlife beyond the gang’s Pink Palace.While it’s hard to pin down the exact origin story of the clone look and outlook, most trace it back to the US West Coast in the late 1970s, with some claim for its rapid growth also laid by New York’s Village scene of the same period.“Don’t ask me why it started, but by the beginning of the 80’s ‘the clone’ was beginning to become a universal phenomenon,” writes Colin Clews on his Gay In The 80s blog. “And I don’t mean Dolly the Sheep!” The original clones, sometimes known as ‘Castro Clones’ after the San Francisco neighbourhood where the style was heavily flaunted, characterised by a hyper-masculine combination of rugged denim, checked shirt, moustache and heavy-duty worker boots.It was a prescriptive, consciously macho look, so much so that, at times, Clone-crowded spaces could feel exclusionary, especially of more femme-leaning men. “If you turned up in a yellow kimono with yellow foundation and two-foot-high hair as [Boy] George used to do, you’d get turned away for not being butch enough,” remembers Wardel of some London nightspots he frequented. London was awash with clones, which was why the youngsters formed their own clubs. Heaven, under London’s Charing Cross station, was a bit more inclusive, he adds. But arts PR Anna Goodman, who ran a night there in the 1980s, says that It’s A Sin scenes filmed in Heaven fail to capture the true flavour of the time.“What was missing stylistically were clones,” she notes. “London was awash with them, which was why the youngsters formed their own clubs. They didn’t fit in without a checked shirt and moustache. Usually a cap, too, and leathers.”Of watching the show, she says: “We loved the writing a lot. [But] on a level of hair and clothes styling and, of course, language, it was sometimes way off.” “Crew cuts, moustaches, plaid shirts, that very macho look which had actually come across from America – it was the first time gay men were actually dressing to imitate the same people they wanted to have sex with,” says Wardel, who links the aesthetic to that of the working class American man.“Brad Davis was a big clone hero, Richard Gere kind of was. The lumberjack look, an invented hyper-masculinity.” Roy Brown was schooled in clones by older men when he was first out on the scene in the early 80s. “We just thought it was a look!” he says. “You had to start wearing exactly what they were wearing for them to even look at you.”And that look started with Levi 501s. “That was the number one thing, never wear anything outside of that,” he says. “Then either the Timberland boots or the Docker boots, which were either dark or tanned. The jeans fitted skin tight, arse tight, and the clones used to get a wooden block, cover it with sandpaper, and paper round the crotch area to give that effect of shape. It was like a 3D effect – bizarre. And they used to do it slightly around the arse cheeks as well.”Some guys used to wear Wranglers instead of Levis, he qualifies, but the rule was “buttons, never zips, always buttons”. As for shirts, they were either lumberjack (“if you were lucky enough to go to America you’d get them really cheap”) or plain (white, blue, Levi denim) with different grades of styling.“You’d wear the shirt by itself or you had a long-sleeved shirt underneath it, brown neck, long sleeves, and you’ll roll the shirt up your arm, either to your elbow or to the top of your arm and show the long sleeves,” says Brown. Any T-shirt would be white – “crisp, white, ironed” – and if you smoked, it was a Marlboro pack of 20, “on the left side of your elbow under the T-shirt sleeve.” Some adapted clone style to include leather, says Goodman, with chaps and a biker jacket, and a wallet or key on a chain. She recalls the Coleherne pub in Earl’s Court and being “the only woman in a sea of clones, mostly in leather”. Queer coding was a big part of the look. Anything in the back-left pocket on your bum meant you were a top and more dominant; anything in the right-back pocket, more of a passive bottom,” says Brown. “This is where people are cruising you from. Your back pockets are filled with coding,” he explains.“If it’s on the left hand side, you don’t get fucked, you do all the fucking, or you apply pressure to whatever your desire is. If anything is on the right hand side, it means you’re the receptacle, you receive... that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re weaker, you’re the bottom, but you can also be a power bottom.”Brown still sees some diehard clones around today. “You’ll get guys in their 50, 60s and 70s with that aesthetic. Just like seeing someone in full leather attire, as distinctive as someone in an army uniform, you’d stop and look.”But there is tragedy to their story.“AIDS really obliterated that scene of the clones,” says Brown, with sadness. Once so dominant on the scene, “they were the first people to be affected by AIDS, it was the subculture most affected by the disease,” Wardell agrees.“A lot of them actually spent time in America and a lot of them had sex with air stewards, so the suspicion [whether evidenced or not] was that the clones were the people who originally sparked off the AIDS epidemic in Britain because of that contact with America,” Wardell adds – noting that it was 1979 when transatlantic flights became affordable thanks to the Freddie Laker airline.“It was one of the reasons that whole look became associated with the disease, in a way,” he goes on. “This is conjecture, I don’t know this, but I’m imagining some of the clones thought, ‘Oh hang on, people are going to think we’ve got AIDS if we’ve got this look’, so it morphed into something else.”One of the benefits of queer shows like It’s A Sin is their immortalisation of subcultures and attitudes, introducing cultural touch points such as the grim AIDS: Don’t Die Of Ignorance campaign to new, younger audiences and allowing future generations to learn about – and honour – their elders. What’s surprising to me, as a 31-year-old queer man, is how such a pervasive scene, a label banded around as widely at the time as ‘twink’ ‘bear’ or ‘otter’ are today, could vanish in a generation. That’s not to say the culture of hyper-masculinity has died out completely. As Brown sees it, “there’s still sadly trails left of that era of guys being guys. The new clones today are the muscle queens, pumped up on steroids, who don’t want anything to do with anyone who does drag, or is feminine, or is trans.”But for those who want to connect with their forefathers, the Clone Zone store in Soho stands proudly as it did back then – a lasting homage to the scene.Related...'La!'

On August 5, telehealth giant Teladoc struck an $18.5 billion deal to buy Livongo, a chronic-care company. The record deal is sending shockwaves through an industry that analysts say is ripe for more mergers and acquisitions. Business Insider asked 10 venture capitalists and analysts about the impending consolidation in digital health. They listed 10 startups in mental health, drug research, telehealth, and more that are likely to be acquired or make deals of their own soon. For more stories like this, sign up here for our healthcare newsletter, Dispensed. On August 5, telehealth giant Teladoc struck an $18.5 billion deal to buy Livongo, a chronic-care company. It's the biggest deal in digital health history, and it's sending shockwaves through an industry that's ripe for more mergers and acquisitions, according to Rock Health, a digital health venture fund and advisory firm. "This announcement is merely the starter's pistol for an inevitable virtual care platforms race," wrote Sari Kaganoff, a general manager at Rock Health, in a report on August 6. Through the deal, Teladoc wants to become the go-to service for a variety of health needs, not just acute problems like back pain and colds. It's raising the question of who could be the next giant to offer a similar "one platform, multiple conditions" approach, Kaganoff said.

Business Insider asked 10 venture capitalists and analysts about what the impending race means for digital health startups, particularly which ones are acquisition targets for bigger firms.  One investor, Ursheet Parikh of Mayfield, said the sheer size of the "Telavongo" deal likely won't be replicated in 2020, especially since health plans and providers are already so consolidated. It should spur large deals, however, in retail pharmacy and medical devices, he said. Several people told us that mental health is due for some action, too, as people's pandemic-related anxiety and depression are sending startups like Mindstrong and Lyra Health to new heights. Read more: Startups taking new approaches to mental health just raised $588 million, and they're signing on huge customers like Boeing and Starbucks. Companies involved in online clinical trials, men's health, chronic care, data collection, and telehealth also made investors' short lists. "If you would have asked anyone about this last year, they would have predicted very few meaningful exits and a handful of venture-backed unicorns in health tech," Ambar Bhattacharyya, managing director at Maverick Ventures, said. "The events of this year have catalyzed a new shift in this space and now we're moving full steam ahead," he said. Some investors also predicted that Teladoc will try to roll up more upstarts in the near future as it looks to expand its portfolio even further.

There's plenty of potential buyers, several investors said, from more traditional healthcare giants like Walgreens, CVS Health, and Anthem, to tech and retail giants like Amazon, Apple, Google, and Walmart.  Here are the 10 startups that investors say are the most likely to see deals in the near future, ranked by funding raised to date:SEE ALSO: The hot healthcare startup Oak Street surged to a $9.5 billion valuation in its IPO. Here are the investors and execs who stand to make the most. Avail Medsystems - $26.7 million Total funding: $26.7 million, according to PitchBook data What it does: Avail lets doctors collaborate on procedures remotely. While advising a surgery, for example, they can adjust camera angles and annotate notes.  Prominent backers: Baidu, Coatue Management, Sonder Capital, Lux Capital, Playground Globlal, and Refactor Capital. Why industry experts like the company: Investors are increasingly looking for ways care can be delivered more remotely, sparing both the patient and doctors from exposure to coronavirus.  Remote collaboration for surgeries is one way to do that, hence the interest in Avail, a person familiar with the company told Business Insider.  Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, and Philips Healthcare would all be good potential buyers, said the person, who was not authorized to speak openly about theoretical mergers.  Read more: VCs just poured $5.4 billion into startups forging the future of healthcare. Here are the 11 top digital health startups that took home the most cash. Lark Health - $45.2 million Total funding: $45.2 million, according to the company What it does: Lark provides digital care for chronic conditions, similar to Livongo and Omada Health, through coaching, reminders, and connected devices. Prominent backers: Lightspeed Venture Partners, Pegasus Tech Ventures, Tuesday Capital, Otter Rock Capital, and New Capital Fund. Why industry experts like the company: Lark could pair nicely with a big virtual care vendor, like one of Teladoc's telehealth competitors, according to Arielle Trzcinski, an analyst at Forrester.  It could help a telehealth company expand into chronic care management and mental health, she said. "Expanding these services would enable a virtual care vendor to increase their value to existing clients, extend their reach to patients that need or want something other than therapy, and make them competitive with standalone mental health vendors in the market," Trzcinski said.  Read more: See the pitch deck that a hot digital health startup used to stand apart from telehealth rivals and raise millions from VCs. Kaia Health - $50 million Total funding: $50 million, according to the company What it does: Kaia's digital programs help more than 400,000 users manage back pain and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It works with employers, health plans, and providers.  Prominent backers: Heartcore Capital, Balderton Capital, Optum Ventures, Idinvest Partners, Capital300, and 42CAP.  Why industry experts like the company: Kaia's smartphone technology uses digital biomarkers, or indications of health, to monitor patients, Trzcinski said. That reduces friction in the data collection process, eliminating the need for additional devices that can be difficult for patients to use, she said.  Musculoskeletal ailments are a big expense for health plans and employers, often leading to unnecessary surgery or use of pain medication, Trzcinski said. That makes Kaia another good complement to a Teladoc competitor, she continued. Meanwhile, the coronavirus pandemic has only made dealing with chronic conditions more difficult, spurring further interest platforms like Kaia's, the company has said.  Read more: A tiny startup just won a crucial deal with $175 billion drug giant Pfizer, and it shows how apps are becoming the next frontier as Big Pharma pushes beyond pills. Everlywell - $66.1 million Total funding: More than $50 million, according to the company What it does: Everlywell provides at-home lab testing kits for conditions like food sensitivity, vitamin deficiencies, and allergies. Recently, the Austin-based startup launched an approved at-home test for the coronavirus. Prominent backers: Sequoia Capital, SoGal Ventures, Full Tilt Capital, Highland Capital Partners, Next Coast Ventures, and Lori Greiner. Why industry experts like the company: One of the biggest elements of the next phase of virtual care will be testing, according to CRV's Kristin Baker Spohn. Getting patients out of the lab will help cut the cost of testing and diagnostics while meeting patients where they are. "We are seeing that we're entering into Act Two, where you have virtual care instead of telehealth. What is virtual care? That's when you test, treat and track patients in addition to the virtual visits. That ecosystem is exploding in each area," Baker Spohn said. Everlywell is among the largest startups in the at-home testing space, and Baker Spohn predicts that Everlywell and others in this category could be the targets of an acquisition where a larger testing and diagnostics company hopes to add to a suite of services by buying a young upstart.  "Obviously COVID testing is top of mind right now but there are interesting innovations in Color Genomics and other companies that enable at-home testing, especially for chronic conditions," Baker Spohn said. Read more: There are 10 coronavirus tests you can use from home. Here's how they work and where to order one. Hinge Health - $127.1 million Total funding: $127.1 million, according to PitchBook data What it does: Hinge Health operates "digital clinics" to treat back and joint pain with virtual physical therapy. It primarily works with employers to offer its services as a benefit to employees. Prominent backers: Bessemer Venture Partners, Lead Edge Capital, Insight Partners, The Vertical Group, and Atomico. Why industry experts like the company: Treating chronic conditions is another area of healthcare that many investors and analysts felt was ripe for consolidation. Many treatments, like physical therapy, require close, hands-on work between a care provider and a patient, and now are moving online.  "If I am a health system today, I am rethinking my operations for digital experiences versus in-person experiences," Mayfield's Parikh told Business Insider. Hinge Health could be an appealing target for a roll-up strategy, investors said, because its providers works within a set specialty of care. Insurance companies that already work with employers to offer health benefits might be a particularly good fit for Hinge Health. "Those traditional players will get involved because they see these startups as the digital front door," Bessemer Venture Partners' Steve Kraus told Business Insider. Read more: Telemedicine startups have raised hundreds of millions as the coronavirus puts them to the test. Meet the 12 startups forging a new path for healthcare. Hims - $197 million Total funding: $197 million, according to Pitchbook data What it does: The startup sells generic treatments for hair loss, erectile dysfunction, skincare, and nutrition to consumers through its website. It was started exclusively for men but has since expanded to include products for women. Prominent backers: Founders Fund, Forerunner Ventures, Maverick Ventures, IVP, and 8VC, among others. Why industry experts like the company: Bloomberg in August reported that Hims was considering a public offering through a reverse merger with so-called "blank-check" company Oaktree Acquisition, otherwise known as a SPAC.  "The consumer is getting more involved in their healthcare where before, they were more of a passive participant," Bessemer's Kraus told Business Insider. Investors said companies that offer generic treatments could be a promising acquisition target for companies that aren't yet in the business of providing healthcare, namely tech giants like Google or Apple. Parikh at Mayfield said that he likens Hims' potential to that of online pharmacy PillPack, which was acquired by Amazon for about $750 million in 2018. PillPack mails prescriptions to people who take multiple medications, packaging them together based on dose. Read more: How pharmacy startup Medly raised $100 million to take on Amazon and drug-delivering giants. Doctor on Demand - $235.9 million Total funding: $235.9 million, according to the company What it does: Doctor on Demand provides telemedicine services in urgent care, behavioral health, preventive health, and chronic care through its medical group. Prominent backers: Venrock, Andreessen Horowitz, GV, Richard Branson, Rock Health, General Atlantic, and Shervin Pishevar. Why industry experts like the company: With about $240 million raised to date, Doctor on Demand is one of the largest telemedicine companies in the US, and a natural competitor to Teladoc.  It's on Bhattacharyya's short list, and Lux Capital partner Adam Goulburn said it could merge with Amwell, another telehealth giant said to be nearing an IPO. Charles Jones, the chairman and CEO of telehealth competitor MDLIVE also pointed to Doctor on Demand and Amwell's private equity backers as a key element to its acquisition prospects. "I think you are going to see a lot of PE-backed acquirers and targets in the space, but I don't know whether the transactions will complete before the end of the year," Jones said. He was also confident in CEO Hill Ferguson's ability to make an acquisition come to fruition, an often-overlooked element in such deals. "He's a very competent guy," Jones said. "That is a very important component of acquisitions." Jones announced similar plans on August 13. First reported by Stat News, a spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider that MDLive is considering an IPO early next year. Read more: 6 reasons why the telehealth boom is here to stay, according to the CEO of $16 billion Teladoc Omada Health - $257.5 million Total funding: $257.5 million, according to Pitchbook data What it does: Omada helps people manage diabetes, injuries, and mental health through its app, as well as devices and coaching. It works with employers, health plans, and individuals. Prominent backers: Rock Health, NEA, Kapor Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, and Kaiser Permanente Ventures. Why industry experts like the company:  Omada is often compared to Livongo because of their similar approaches to treating chronic conditions like diabetes. Omada's program has about 380,000 total participants, CEO Sean Duffy told Business Insider.  In May, Omada acquired Physera for $30 million, expanding into physical therapy, while raised an additional $57 million, CNBC reported. Now that Livongo has been acquired, it sets up competitors like Omada to be potential acquisition targets.  "With Livongo's success, Omada is next up," Goulburn said. Forrester's Trzcinski said Omada is a likely acquisition target for virtual care vendors that're competitors to Teladoc.  Maverick's Bhattacharyya also has his eye on the upstart, he said.  Natural buyers include Walgreens, Walmart, and Amazon, or it could merge with Doctor on Demand, Goulburn said.  Omada has no reported plans to get scooped up, but it'll be asking current customers if they'd like to see more telemedicine services in light of the Teladoc-Livongo deal, Duffy said.  Read more: Teladoc is acquiring Livongo in the biggest deal that digital health has ever seen. Here are the 3 key takeaways from Wall Street's top analysts, from shock at the price tag to optimism for healthcare's digital future. Ro - $376.1 million Total funding: $376 million, according to the company What it does: Ro is a startup that got its start treating conditions like erectile dysfunction. In the years since, Ro has gone on to expand the model to treating more conditions, and in June set up a pharmacy service in which all generic medications dispensed are $5. The company facilitates online visits with medical professionals who can prescribe medications. Those medications are then shipped through Ro's pharmacy.  Prominent backers: General Catalyst, Slow Ventures, FirstMark Capital, Torch Capital, Initialized Capital, and Canaan Partners. Why industry experts like the company: Amid the coronavirus pandemic, investors accurately predicted that fewer patients would go to a physical doctor's office for non-emergency issues. Telehealth startups that offer virtual visits have seen demand increase, some investors said, but it's not yet clear which preferences will stick around once the pandemic subsides. "I think we will see providers adopt a new world order," CRV's Baker Spohn told Business Insider. "I don't see virtual care going away. The analogy I like to use is, if you look at 'mobile banking' a few years ago and now we just call it 'banking'. In the same way, it won't be 'virtual care' it will just be 'care'. The access part is what will fundamentally change." The current landscape has made telehealth startups like Ro particularly appealing acquisition targets for large companies that aren't already operating in healthcare. Baker Spohn and others pointed to Apple, Google, and Amazon as likely buyers of the generics-based telehealth startup. The company recently raised $200 million at a $1.5 billion valuation, so the deal might be farther out than others, some investors said.

Why industry experts like the company: Amwell is one of Teladoc's biggest competitor with 80 million covered lives and more than 2,000 health systems and hospitals using its services.  It has a lot of cash in hand for a potential move — recently raising $194 million from investors — and confidentially filed to go public in June, CNBC reported. "A company that is [a good candidate] is the guys over at Amwell," MDLIVE's Jones told Business Insider. "They have an appetite for those sorts of things and they've shown they can raise a lot of money." Omada's Duffy and Lux's Goulburn could see Amwell merging with another digital health company. Goulburn thinks Omada and Hinge Health could each make good fits, he said.
WarnerMedia's new CEO Jason Kilar announced a major restructuring of the AT&T-owned media company last week. He consolidated operations across the sprawling media empire, while dismissing three key executives and beginning layoffs of hundreds of more staffers. He also elevated a handful of key leaders who were chosen to run newly expanded divisions within the company. Business Insider looked at the executives whose power grew as part of WarnerMedia's latest leadership shuffle.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. WarnerMedia's Jason Kilar, in his first major move as CEO, is collapsing the legacy-media company's byzantine organizational structure. On Friday, Kilar announced in a memo to staffers sweeping changes that consolidated WarnerMedia's content operations across TV, film, and streaming under Warner Bros., formed a new group to run all international operations, combined the company's US ad-sales and distribution groups, and brought marketing and communications under new control. Kilar dismissed three top execs as part of the leadership shuffle, including two people in charge of programming HBO Max. At least 800 staffers across Warner Bros. and HBO are also being laid off, Variety reported.  The statures of other leaders are rising within the company. Kilar named the executives chosen to run these newly expanded groups. They include people like Ann Sarnoff, who runs Warner Bros.; HBO's programming president, Casey Bloys; and Andy Forssell, who was a key player in getting HBO Max off the ground. Kilar also revealed which of his direct reports were largely safe for now:  Jeff Zucker remains chairman of WarnerMedia News and Sports Pascal Desroches is still CFO Richard Tom, Kilar's first C-suite hire, is staying on as chief technology officer Jim Cummings continues as as chief human resources officer Priya Dogra carries on her duties as executive vice president of strategy and corporate development Jim Meza is still exec vice president, general counsel Here are the seven executives whose power grew as part of WarnerMedia's restructuring: Jason Kilar Kilar already had the power, but the restructuring was his first major display of it after taking the CEO job in May. His move to simplify the legacy studio's sprawling media empire undid some key appointments by his predecessor and current boss, John Stankey, who runs AT&T. For instance, Kilar dismissed former WarnerMedia Entertainment and Direct-to-Consumer chairman Bob Greenblatt, who was Stankey's first splashy hire when he took control of WarnerMedia after it was bought by AT&T. Kilar reigns over the Warner Bros. TV and film businesses; cable networks like CNN and HBO; entertainment brands like DC Entertainment and Turner Sports; and ad-tech arm, Xandr. He's been pushing the organization to put consumers before short-term business interests, discouraging practices like squeezing too many ads into the forthcoming ad-supporting version of HBO Max, as Jessica Toonkel at The Information reported. He also brings with him a wealth of digital experience to complement other WarnerMedia leaders like Ann Sarnoff and Jeff Zucker, who come from traditional TV and film backgrounds. Kilar spent about nine years at Amazon in various roles including senior vice president of worldwide application software. He was Hulu's founding CEO, helping its legacy-media owners stake a claim in and create business models for streaming video. And he cofounded and led the short-form video startup Vessel, which was acquired by Verizon in a 2016 attempt to revive its now-defunct mobile-video unit, Go90. Ann Sarnoff Warner Bros. chair and chief Ann Sarnoff is taking on responsibility for all the company's TV and film programming as part of her expanded role leading its new Studios and Networks group. On top of running WarnerMedia's studios, Sarnoff now oversees content for HBO, HBO Max, and TV channels TBS, TNT, and TruTV. While well-known in entertainment circles, Sarnoff is a rare Hollywood outsider to lead the iconic Warner Bros. studio. She was hired from BBC Studios in 2019. She brings to the gig more operational and TV prowess, having spent nine years at BBC, most recently as president of BBC Studios America where she helped grow viewership for franchises like "Doctor Who" and "BBC Earth." She also served for stints at Dow Jones and the WNBA, as well as for about a decade in various roles at Viacom. Sarnoff is out to prove that the traditional TV and film studio can evolve for the digital age. In her first year in the job, she formed a new film label to produce mid-budget movies for HBO Max. She also made key appointments, including naming Tom Ascheim from Disney's Freeform to an expansive role leading global kids, young adults, and classics. Casey Bloys Casey Bloys is the creative force behind HBO, and now he's programming for HBO Max and TV channels TNT, TBS, and TruTV, too. He was put in charge of original content on those platforms as former content chief Kevin Reilly exited. Bloys reports to Sarnoff in his new role. Kilar praised Bloys in a recent interview with Bloomberg's Lucas Shaw for helping shepherd in the quality programming that Kilar believes sets HBO Max apart from other streamers. Bloys has helped HBO lead in premium TV even as Apple, Amazon, and Netflix race to beat the network at its own game.  Bloys was responsible for critically acclaimed HBO series that recently received Emmy's nods like "The Watchman" and "Euphoria," as well as documentaries like "McMillions." He joined HBO in 2004 and came up at the cable network as a programming exec under former chief executive Richard Plepler. Plepler led HBO during an era that included cultural hits like "Game of Thrones" and "Boardwalk Empire." Bloys was promoted to programming chief in 2016, after helping bring in a string of comedy hits like "Silicon Valley," "Veep," and "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver." After Plepler departed in 2019, Bloys led the network alongside Glenn Whitehead, who handles business and legal affairs. Bloys has continued to pursue boundary-pushing series like the racy teen drama "Euphoria," and "Run," a dark comedy from "Fleabag" creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge. And he's on the hunt for the network's next smash hit. He currently has a "Game of Thrones" prequel, called "House of the Dragon," in the works for 2022. Bloys also oversees original programming for Cinemax, which has struggled in the last year as pay-TV distributors stopped bundling it with HBO. The network wasn't mentioned in Kilar's latest announcement. Andy Forssell Andy Forssell, Kilar's fellow Hulu alum, is being elevated to the top job overseeing the business side of HBO Max. Forssell runs product, marketing, consumer engagement for WarnerMedia's flagship streaming service in his new role as general manager of HBO Max. He's also architecting the platform's global expansion, which Kilar says will kick off in Latin America. Forssell has managed much of the day-to-day development for the HBO Max product since its inception. He was the chief operating officer at Otter Media before taking on the HBO Max duties. At Otter, insiders told Business Insider Forssell was a key liaison between upper management and the individual brands like Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, and DC Universe. Forssell joined Otter Media from its subsidiary Fullscreen, where he had been its chief operating officer. He was also a top player at Hulu for six years, where he held a number of roles, including acting CEO in 2013. Gerhard Zeiler Chief Revenue Officer Gerhard Zeiler is now running WarnerMedia's newly combined international arm that spans Warner Bros, HBO, and Turner's TV channels.  He's responsible for the local operations of WarnerMedia's TV networks, as well as commercial activities like ad sales and distribution, and regional programming for HBO Max. As CRO, Zeiler has been a key player in monetizing WarnerMedia's businesses in various ways including subscriptions for HBO Max. He was also part of the effort to bring an ad-supported tier to HBO Max, which CNBC reported is expected to launch in 2021. Zeiler led the team responsible for negotiating carriage deals with TV providers like fellow AT&T subsidiary DirecTV and cable company Comcast, as well. Recently, that group has been hustling to make HBO Max available through as many platforms and distributors as possible. But it's yet to land a deal with the two biggest streaming platforms: Roku and Amazon Fire TV. When asked why HBO Max isn't on Amazon devices by Bloomberg, Kilar said to "call the Seattle folks." Zeiler, who has been with WarnerMedia since the Time Warner days, was also in charge of integrating WarnerMedia's ad-sales group with Xandr's ad-tech business since the two divisions merged in April. No mention was made of Xandr in Kilar's memo announcing the restructuring. Tony Goncalves Otter Media CEO Tony Goncalves is in charge of WarnerMedia's new commercial arm that unites its US ad-sales and distribution groups with its home-entertainment and content-licensing efforts. Goncalves will be leading closely watched relationships with major advertisers, distributors, and other streamers in the new gig. Content licensing, for example, is a hot topic for HBO Max as DC and Harry Potter films rotate on and off the platform. The service has also been on a mission to bring marquee titles from the Warner Bros. catalog to the service, like "Friends." Goncalves, who joined AT&T through its 2015 acquisition of DirecTV, was a key player in launching HBO Max. Greenblatt, WarnerMedia's old direct-to-consumer boss, turned to him for his streaming expertise last May, as Otter Media was also being brought closer under the WarnerMedia umbrella. At DirecTV, Goncalves oversaw the satellite-TV operator's digital efforts, including its TV Everywhere and over-the-top platforms, among other roles. He rose in the ranks under the phone company. He was CEO of AT&T's digital brands, where he oversaw the relationship between AT&T and The Chernin Group, which operated Otter Media as a joint venture until AT&T bought full control in 2018. And he led the launch strategy for DirecTV Now (now AT&T TV Now), which was the company's last major digital-TV initiative. The linear streaming service got off to a solid start in 2016, but lost subscribers as programming costs ballooned, discounts were nixed in an effort to become profitable, and AT&T shifted its focus in 2020 to a pricier internet-based offering that is more akin to traditional pay-TV services. Christy Haubegger Christy Haubegger, a former Creative Artists Agency agent and founding member of the Time's Up initiative, is taking control of WarnerMedia's marketing and communications groups. Haubegger joined WarnerMedia in 2019 as chief enterprise inclusion officer. Kilar's restructure puts WarnerMedia's global marketing and communications teams, including those responsible for branding and corporate-social responsibility, under Haubegger's command. The shift comes as Hollywood and the broader media industry is reckoning with its record on race and gender. In recent weeks, HBO and other entertainment platforms have been trying to amplify Black creators and voices who they work with in light of the latest racial-justice movement.  Haubegger, who founded Latina magazine in the 1990s, has an established track record for elevating women of color and diverse voices in the entertainment industry. She brought clients like Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez, and Salma Hayek to CAA during her time there and pushed the agency to work with more clients of color, according to Stanford Lawyer, a publication by Haubegger's alma mater, Stanford Law School.
New WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar is shaking up the company's leadership ranks in a major reorganization that will see three top execs depart the company. The key departures include Bob Greenblatt, chairman of WarnerMedia Entertainment and Direct-to-Consumer; Kevin Reilly, HBO Max's content chief and president of TNT, TBS, and TruTV; and Keith Cocozza, executive vice president, corporate marketing and communications. Kilar also elevated other leaders including Ann Sarnoff, who will oversee WarnerMedia's expanded Studios and Networks group, and HBO's programming president Casey Bloys, who will take on responsibility of content for HBO Max, TNT, TBS, and TruTV. Read Kilar's full memo announcing the changes below. If you have a tip about WarnerMedia, email the author at [email protected] or message her via the encrypted messaging app Signal at +1-347-770-5933. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Three top WarnerMedia execs are exiting the company amid a major shakeup led by new CEO Jason Kilar. The changes come just months after Kilar took the reins on May 1, and the company launched its new flagship streaming service HBO Max on May 27. Two of the departing execs were key to the launch of HBO Max. Their exits comes as Warner Bros. and HBO leaders are being elevated within the company and taking control of HBO Max's content. AT&T said HBO Max had about 4.1 million total activations after its first month, including about 3 million who subscribed to the service and those HBO customers who activated their HBO Max accounts. Here are the key exec departures:  WarnerMedia Entertainment and Direct-to-Consumer chairman Bob Greenblatt, who was brought in by AT&T CEO John Stankey to oversee the company's entertainment channels and streaming services including HBO Max, is departing. Kevin Reilly, HBO Max's content chief and president, TNT, TBS, and truTV, is also out. And Keith Cocozza, executive vice president, corporate marketing and communications, is exiting.  As part of the shakeup, Warner Bros. chair and CEO Ann Sarnoff will oversee WarnerMedia's newly created Studios and Networks group, which includes all the company's original production and programming. HBO's longtime programming president, Casey Bloys, is taking on oversight of content for HBO Max and TV networks TNT, TBS, and TruTV, reporting to Sarnoff. And HBO Max's business will be led by Andy Forssell, who is now GM of HBO Max, reporting directly to Kilar. Forssell helped build the streaming service and get it off the ground in his earlier role. Kilar announced the changes in a email to staff on Friday. Read Kilar's full memo, published by WarnerMedia:  Team- It has been a little over 90 days since I joined the mission and the team. These past three months have exceeded my already high expectations. As I shared with you recently, my bullishness about our future has only grown as I have gotten to know you much better and as I have gotten to know our company much better. As some of you may recall, I shared three thoughts with you on my first day email: That history was filled with examples of special entrepreneurial companies that leaned into moments of great change in order to better serve customers. That our taking smart and bold risks is so important to the road ahead. And,  My belief that missionary companies ultimately shine…and my strong belief that ours is a team filled with missionaries. With the above as context, I'd like to share some decisions I am announcing today that represent our leaning into this great moment of change, in order to better serve our customers. These changes, which are neither timid nor without risk, are possible in part because we are missionaries that ultimately believe we can and will change the world through story. That is what this all comes back to. Because of the gift that is the internet, we have what I believe is one of the greatest opportunities in the history of media, which is to deliver our beloved stories and experiences directly to hundreds of millions of consumers across the globe. Earning this ambitious future won't come easy. To do so, I believe it is vital that we change how we are organized, that we simplify, and that we act boldly and with urgency. The pandemic's economic pressures and acceleration of direct-to-consumer streaming adoption places an even higher premium on these points. To accomplish this, we are going to do the following: We are elevating HBO Max in the organization and expanding its scope globally. We are simplifying how we organize our studios. We are creating a consolidated International unit focused on scale and efficiency. We are bringing our key commercial activities into one group to allow us to operate more strategically.  We are making other structural changes that will help us operate more effectively and efficiently. Andy Forssell, General Manager of HBO Max, will now be leading a newly created HBO Max operating business unit and report to me. Andy and his team will be responsible for the product, marketing, consumer engagement and global rollout of HBO Max.  Ann Sarnoff, Warner Bros. Chair and CEO, will be leading our newly created Studios and Networks Group, combining original production (content studios) and programming capabilities currently spread across Warner Bros., HBO, HBO Max, TNT, TBS and TruTV.  This group will oversee all WarnerMedia television series and motion picture development, production and programming, partnering with Andy to ensure HBO Max is successful globally.  Casey Bloys, President HBO Programming, will also be taking on original content responsibilities for HBO Max and the domestic linear networks TNT, TBS, and TruTV. Casey will report to Ann. Casey and the HBO team have done an incredible job over the last several decades delighting consumers with HBO original programming and I am excited for Casey and this expanded team to have an even greater impact on the world. The Warner Bros. Motion Pictures Group continues to be led by Chairman Toby Emmerich. Warner Bros. Television Studios group continues to be led by Chairman Peter Roth. Warner Bros. Interactive remains part of the Studios and Networks group, along with our Global Brands and Franchises team including DC led by Pam Lifford, and our Kids, Young Adults and Classics business led by Tom Ascheim, all focused on engaging fans with our brands and franchises through games and other interactive experiences.  Gerhard Zeiler, currently Chief Revenue Officer, will now be leading a newly integrated international group comprised of the international operations of Warner Bros., HBO and Turner Networks. This group will be responsible for local execution of all WarnerMedia linear businesses, commercial activities, and regional programming for HBO Max. Tony Goncalves, CEO of Otter and a key leader of HBO Max, will lead the new commercial unit that combines the U.S. advertising sales and distribution groups with our home entertainment and content licensing so that all commercial activities are strategically managed across internal and external customers.  Christy Haubegger, Chief Enterprise Inclusion Officer, will now also oversee the global marketing and communications team including branding and corporate social responsibility, as we bring together all of our efforts around equity and inclusion throughout our business.  Jeff Zucker continues as Chairman of WarnerMedia News and Sports. Pascal Desroches (CFO), Rich Tom (CTO), Jim Cummings (CHRO), Priya Dogra (EVP, Strategy and Corporate Development) and Jim Meza (EVP, General Counsel) continue to report to me. Simplifying our approach and narrowing our focus goes beyond, for example, having one content organization vs two. It also means that we will be reducing the size of our teams, our layers, and our overall workforce. These reductions are not in any way a reflection of the quality of the people impacted nor their work. It is simply a function of the above changes I believe are necessary for WarnerMedia and our collective ability to best serve customers. This is the part that is painful and very hard. It is difficult to find the appropriate words here to say other than that I am very sorry. These are talented, admired leaders and beloved colleagues. Three of those talented, admired leaders who will be leaving the company are Bob Greenblatt, Kevin Reilly and Keith Cocozza. I want to thank Bob and Kevin for getting us to this point with the integration of HBO and the legacy Turner Networks and launch of HBO Max. It has been such an impressive sequence of events, and we are so much better for it. I also owe a tremendous amount of gratitude and thanks to Keith, for not only helping me navigate these last few months at the company - and with the media - but more importantly for his 19 years at the company through its evolution. I have never met a kinder, more collaborative executive in my career. I can't wait to see how each of these leaders change the world in the years to come. I realize this is a lot to take in. And none of us should expect the above changes to be easy. That said, we are successfully navigating a pandemic together and I know that, however challenging the above changes may be, we will also successfully navigate them as well. As each of you take some time to digest the above, I hope that you become more and more energized by how, together, we are boldly leaning into the future and this historic opportunity that is right in front of us. It is an honor to be on this team with each of you. Please join me for a town hall discussion – and Q&A – focused on these changes on Monday, August 10th at 9:15am Pacific Time. It will be livestreamed here. JasonJoin the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: The rise and fall of Donald Trump's $365 million airline
