Reflections on the SAG-AFTRA Strike

How fitting that in the final throes of the most contentious presidential campaign season in recent memory, SAG-AFTRA would choose to engage in that most divisive of ploys: A STRIKE (or that the video game industry would choose to engage in that most divisive of... read more

July 2016 Rates Roundtable: SAG-AFTRA

One year ago this month, WoVO began sponsoring a series of “R.A.D.A.R. Rates Roundtables”.  RADAR stands for Rates And Digital Ad Reform…a fancy acryonym warning us to be aware of compsation challenges/changes in the marketplace, especially as... read more
