Global Events on Yahoo Live
May 19, 2018 was a big day as the wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle took place. While every media around the world wanted to catch the eyeballs of their audience by delivering news of The Royal Wedding, Yahoo TV worked around the clock to deliver The Royal Box Live. Yahoo TV broadcasted the Live across screens on Yahoo Frontpage, Yahoo TV Homepage and Yahoo News App, along with chatroom hosted by Yahoo Editor to build up the dialogue for the talk of the town. Tremendous feedbacks and results earned.
Another big day in the month of May was in the Financial Sector, as Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting took place on May 5 at Downtown Omaha. Investors, big or small, all looked forward to hear from Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett and his right-hand man Charlie Munger who shared their unscripted views on the company, the markets, the economy, and more.
Besides being the exclusive online host of the program for the third consecutive year, Yahoo Finance Team in Hong Kong specially added a local touch by inviting Mr. Vincent Lam (林少陽 - 以立投資董事總經理) to be the guest host of the chatroom to share his experience on value investment.
