Former TVT chief operating officer Jake Robbins has teamed up with consultant John Wallace to form a new consultancy business called the Broadcast Associates.

The duo, along with a cavalcade of associates, will offer support and advise to broadcasters and media companies and work alongside operational teams.

Robbins’ (pictured) career has included stints at Red Bee Media and the BBC, where he was a network director.

A former engineering manager at BBC World News, Wallace has provided consultancy for UKTV, PBS America, TVT and Scripps Networks Interactive, among others.
