ABC appoints Mike Dean as its vice president of programmatic and data-driven sales, a new position at the company.

About 68 percent of online video viewers watch YouTube video, while 51 percent view video from TV broadcasts, and 49 percent are Netflix video viewers, according to a survey from Adroit Digital, a video advertising company.
