This is a difficult decision for all of us at adBrite. However, after much deliberation this seems to be the best course of action despite the impact it will have on all the employees, clients and partners who helped build this business. There will be a team in place as needed to assist with winding down.
Thank you for being part of the adBrite community.

Independent Photographer Receives the 2012 LA Music Awards Producer’s Choice Award for “Career Achievement in Photography”
While The Hollywood Music in Media Awards moves their awards venue from Hollywood and Highland Complex to The Fonda Theater. They were couple blocks away from the Award show that everyone is talking about it in Hollywood and that have created a huge BUZZ for the “LAMA’s”.
On Thursday, November 15, 2012 The 22nd Annual Los Angeles Music Awards and 6th Annual Hollywood F.A.M.E. Awards were held at Avalon Hollywood nightclub located 1735 Vine Street Los Angeles, CA 90028 from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
“It was a great honor to be selected by the Producer’s Choice Award for “Career Achievement in photography”. I would like to thank those on both sides of the velvet ropes for their help. From the celebrities who have welcomed me and the many other fine photographers who have helped me learn how to be the photographer that I am today. I love being part of this community and being awarded this honor is more than I ever would have thought possible.” said Bob Delgadillo, award recipient and Diversity News Magazine contributor photographer.
Bob credits his mother for showing interest in photography, because she was the family historian and photographer. Nothing professional but she would snapshots of every family gathering going back to the 1940′s. Bob started taking photos and learning to develop film and making prints back to his junior high school days in the early 60′s. His interest continued on as an amateur hobbyist level with film until digital photography took off in the mid 2000′s. The advent of digital photography and the Internet now made it easy to do great photography at a economical cost. More importantly the ability to share your work with other professional photographers through the Internet was key to reawakening his interest in photography. He soon graduated to a DSLR camera and started posting on photo sharing sites and got great feedback and encouragement to move my photography into the professional level.
“Congratulations to Bob Delgadillo Recipient of 2012 LA Music Awards Producer’s Choice Award for “Career Achievement in Photography”. Bob is a very humble professional. You can count on him to photograph beautiful pictures, and capture those memorable moments. He works well with others, and gets things done in a timely matter. His photography work and friendly demeanor deserves to be recognized for all his hard work and dedication”. said Colleague, writer/reporter and photographer for Diversity News Magazine Stella Gomez.
“The hours are long. For every hour of shooting an equal amount of time, I spent processing hours after the event and everyone has gone home. I work on the computer trying to get them up by the next morning so that they can see what they looked like at the event. The pay is minimal at best. Usually just enough to pay for parking and gas or gear that needs replacing. The real reward comes from taking that priceless photo of a person at a special event that they will always treasure. What other job can one do that does that for their clients?” concludes Mr. Delgadillo.
Also on a press release by the event producers they stated that: Longtime Hollywood photographer Bob Delgadillo, a stalwart at red carpet events around the city, received a Producer’s Choice Award for “Career Achievement in Photography”

On Monday, August 20, 2012 FOX announced that Kevin Reilly has been promoted to Chairman of Entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX), it was announced by Peter Rice, Chairman and CEO, Fox Networks Group. In his new role, Reilly will oversee all programming, scheduling, marketing, research, digital and business affairs at the network.
“Kevin is a uniquely gifted executive with the strong strategic vision and creative instincts to ensure that FOX continues to drive the future of our industry,” said Rice. “We are incredibly fortunate to have him here and thrilled he will be with us for many more years.”
Over the course of Reilly’s tenure, FOX has extended its reign as the No. 1 network among Adults 18-49 for a record eight consecutive seasons and has repeatedly dominated among the young Adults 18-34 and Teen demographics. Under his leadership, the network launched Emmy Award-nominated and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon GLEE, and most recently introduced NEW GIRL, the network’s highest-rated sitcom in 10 years, as well as THE X FACTOR, last season’s No. 1 new unscripted series.
Reilly has also bolstered FOX’s leadership and investment in digital and social media, and was the architect behind the recently launched Animation Domination HD – an independent production subsidiary now ramping up production to generate alternative animation for digital channels and a late-night block on FOX.
“I am grateful to Peter for extending my role at FOX where I’m inspired every day by the incredible leadership of Joe Earley, Mike Darnell and our entire team at the network – as well as the leadership above us at News Corporation,” said Reilly. “This is a transformative time in our industry – one that presents huge opportunities – and we intend for FOX, and all of our programming, to remain the gold standard for innovation.”
Throughout his career, Reilly has distinguished himself as one of television’s most influential and forward-thinking leaders. Prior to joining FOX in 2007, Reilly served as President of Entertainment at NBC, where he introduced popular hits such as “The Office,” “The Biggest Loser,” “Heroes,” “Friday Night Lights” and the multi-award-winning Tina Fey sitcom, “30 Rock.” Reilly joined NBC from FX, where he served as President of Entertainment and was instrumental in successfully transforming it from a fledgling cable network into a profitable creative powerhouse. At FX, Reilly re-defined the basic cable business by branding the network with an aggressive slate of original quality programs, including seminal series “The Shield” and “Nip/Tuck.” Within a year of Reilly’s arrival, FX made cable history when “The Shield” broke cable ratings records and went on to receive a Golden Globe Award for Best Drama Series (2002) and an Emmy Award for lead actor Michael Chiklis (2002) – both firsts for basic cable.
Prior to joining FX, Mr. Reilly was President of Brillstein-Grey Entertainment. He joined Brillstein-Grey in 1994 and was responsible for shepherding the pilot for the landmark series “The Sopranos” – one of the most successful and critically acclaimed shows in television history – and the NBC hit comedies “Just Shoot Me” and “NewsRadio.”
