Known for his insightful commentary on the technology issues of today, Palmer's years of experience in the media industry include serving as the patented inventor of the underlying technology that created Enhanced Television for ABC, an application used in programming like "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" and "Monday Night Football."
A renowned author and journalist, Palmer is a weekly columnist for the Jack Myers Media Business Report, The Huffington Post, and is a technology commentator for CNN.com. In 2008, Palmer released the updated version of his 2006 book, titled Television Disrupted: The Transition from Network to Networked TV (2nd Edition), a book that describes the technological, economic, and sociological forces that are changing the television industry.
Currently, Palmer serves as both the managing director of Advanced Media Ventures Group, LLC, an industry-leading advisory and business development firm, and president of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in New York. An established composer, Palmer was awarded the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers' (ASCAP) prestigious Film and Television Music Award for ABC's hit series "Spin City" in 1997.
