The state of the NYC Media and Tech Industries is strong, but increased diversity and an openness to startups and tech innovation is key to future growth, according to an assessment by the NYC Media Lab. “New York used to be able to sell itself as being the center of everyone.

That is what makes New York unique and powerful.”

Netflix tied CBS’ 1974 record Emmy haul of 44 this year, a milestone not lost on its execs. “I was here eight years ago when we started having drama shows with ‘House of Cards’ and we had no idea if we were going to be eligible even,” said Peter Friedlander, the streamer’s head of US and Canada scripted series, on a press call. “So to be where we are as of last night eight years later felt like such a sea change, and it’s so thrilling.” But when it comes to airing the Emmys ceremony, don’t look for Netflix to steal the show just yet. “Broadcast TV still does great live events and they know how to put these shows on,” said Bela Bajaria, Netflix head of global TV.
