Minami Tanaka in a pinch? TV Asahi’s “ace” has a “surprising new job”.
Commercial key stations used to dominate the top rankings of companies that university students wanted to work for. In recent years, however, they have lost their top positions to consulting and IT companies, and are even called “trash. In recent years, there has been a string of departures at these key stations, and one of TV Asahi’s big-name producers is leaving the company.
A TV Asahi official confides with sadness, “In recent years, I have been working for TV Tokyo as a producer of the ‘TV Tokyo’ program, and I have been working for TV Asahi as a producer of the ‘TV Tokyo’ program.
In recent years,” a source close to Television Asahi confides with sadness, “Yoshiyuki Sakuma, 46, who launched ‘Godtan’ at TV Tokyo, and Ryohei Kamide, 33, who won the Galaxy Award for ‘Hyper Hardboiled Gourmet Report,’ have left the company and are now working as freelance TV people. I never thought that such a trend of the times would even come to TV Asahi, one of the highest paid companies in the TV industry. ……”
Although it has long been said that TV Asahi is a declining industry, the average salary at TV Asahi is over 13 million yen, and the company is said to have the best treatment among the highly-paid employees of commercial key stations. Taro Ashida, 37, a producer, is leaving TV Asahi.
Mr. Ashida, whose father is the philosopher Hironao Ashida, will be leaving TV Asahi to work on “What’s Wrong with Being Awkward? and “What’s That Guy Doing Now? and “What’s wrong with him?” with Minami Tanaka (35), he was regarded in the TV Asahi industry as the successor to Rinzo Kaji, who enlivened TV Asahi with his “Ronha” and “Ametalk” programs. Minami Tanaka, in particular, is a woman who has a strong sense of femininity. In particular, Minami Tanaka’s programs, which sold a feminine “sassiness” unique to women, strongly appealed to the F1 demographic (female viewers aged 20-34), the demographic most likely to purchase and be sponsored by women. For this reason, he is highly regarded by the station’s upper management and appears in the employee introduction section of the new graduate recruiting website. He will be leaving the company at the end of the year and moving to “Amazon. At Amazon, he will be in charge of Amazon Prime Video production.
He has already taken over the program he was in charge of such as “Haven’t You Applied Yet? Ashida says that he has already handed over the program he was in charge of, including the “Naniwa Otoko” show that he was directing himself. He has told those around him that he would like to work in the Internet media, where he can express his thoughts more freely, rather than on TV, where compliance regulations are strictly enforced. However, TV Asahi has its own Internet TV station, ABEMA, which was jointly established with CyberAgent. Why did they choose Amazon over ABEMA?
Unlike ABEMA, which has a domestic audience only, Amazon’s audience is worldwide. Naturally, production costs are said to be at least two orders of magnitude higher. They probably want to use the abundant production budget to produce a free variety of programs.
When we called Mr. Ashida directly, he replied, “I am a company employee, so I can’t give you an answer.
He said, “I am a company employee, so I can’t give you an answer. Please ask the company’s public relations department.
He replied in a calm voice, “I am a company employee, so I can’t answer your questions.
When we asked TV Asahi about the fact that Mr. Ashida had left the company, they replied in a calm voice, “I can’t answer that question because I am a company employee.
When we asked TV Asahi about the fact that Mr. Ashida had left the company, the answer was, “We do not answer questions that involve personal privacy.
TV Asahi’s response was, “We do not answer questions about personal privacy matters.
Mr. Ashida’s brilliant career change from old media to a giant IT company. Minami Tanaka is not the only one who has been watching his steps from inside the station with a superior eye.
