Diller keeping mum on programming plans

Published on .

Barry Diller, speaking at the Liberty Media investor meeting in New York this morning, said it would be "worse than dumb" to talk about the programming concepts for his planned network using the Silver King television stations as a base. He said the company plans to build a broadcast network first at the local level and then go national with the type of clean branding that could yield prosperity by reaching 10 percent of the audience. He said the network would not go on the air for at least a year and that the network would sell things in addition to advertising time. "We can take advantage of convergence like no other company," Mr. Diller said.
