In the most recent program for the Quantum Media/ Harvard Business School Media Guru and  Media Disruptor series, veteran news executive, Betsy L. Morgan,  discussed innovative strategy, growth potential and challenges as the President and Chief Strategy Officer of TheBlaze, on April 10 at The Conference Center in Manhattan. The multimedia news and information 24/7 network was launched by Glenn Beck and is available online, through a subscriber based IP-delivered network, and on traditional cable/satellite.

Morgan gave an on-the-record talk and spoke extensively about the business model and the challenges of running a start-up.  She said her biggest challenge for 2014 was making sure that the the place didn't "burn down" with all the passionate and enthusastic energy the staff brings to their work.

Morgan  joined TheBlaze in 2011 after serving as the CEO of The Huffington Post. (The Huffington Post was sold to Aol in 2011.)  While at The Huffington Post, Morgan led the award-winning site to rapid audience and revenue growth.
