The fight for attention: Chair Priya Dogra opens the RTS London Convention 2022

Viewing habits, business models and technology continue to change but, as media companies compete for attention, great content remains the key to success. That was one of the key points made by Priya Dogra, President and Managing Director, EMEA, of Warner Bros. Discovery, during her opening remarks at the RTS London Convention, which she chaired.

Over the past century, she said, film, TV and other media had been engaged in “a battle for people’s time and money, responding to challenges from new technologies and trying to create and secure the best content”.

For an Indian-born entertainment executive who has spent much of her life working for Time Warner in New York, Priya Dogra needs no reminding that today’s television businesses operating at scale have no option but to think globally. “Nowadays, hit shows come from all over the world,” she says. 

Dogra, 43, was the big winner of the recent Warner Bros Discovery international reshuffle and, as the London-­based President and Managing Director for EMEA, she leads one of the key international divisions of the newly merged behemoth.
