It will run live via streaming video on Feb. 10, starting at 9:30 a.m. PST. Jim Spanfeller, president-CEO of Forbes.com, said in a statement: "Tune-in advertising has been around for a long time, but this is the first time that we know of that it's been targeted at senior business decision makers."
