What's In A Name
"Where did you come up with the name 1708 Media?"
It’s one of the most frequent questions we’re asked. 1708 is the street address of the television station where we met and worked together. For us it’s a reminder of where we came from - our journalistic roots, years of friendship and a professional partnership that began even before we launched 1708 Media.
