The Year the Media Died

When investment banker Terence Kawaja, managing director, GCA Savvian Advisors, decides to leave his day job, he’ll have something to fall back on: creating spoof music videos.

At Federated Media’s Conversational Marketing Summit (#cmsummit) Monday in NYC, Kawaja showed off his music video, “The Day the Media Died,” written to the tune of the 1971 hit, “American Pie.”
