LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clix Inc., the leader in consumer guidance for what to watch across all streaming platforms, today announced a strategic partnership with veteran Wall Street professionals who are committed, in this time of economic turmoil, to helping viewers “learn to earn.” Wall Street pros Marc LoPresti, along with Pete Najarian, and Jon Najarian (who traded NFL defensive careers for offensive options, crypto and stock trading success) are teaming up with Clix to create and distribute a series of consumer financial shows under the banner “Get Savvy, Get Rich.”
The CNBC regulars and partners in Market Rebellion, along with financial industry veteran LoPresti are producing original shows including “Crypto Convo,” “CEOs at the Nasdaq,” and “The Disruptors” (coming soon). Clix will market, distribute, monetize and showcase this unique financial content across Clix.com, Clix mobile apps and the Clix linear video channels on Over The Top (OTT) platforms and Smart TVs. Clix reaches 120 million OTT television homes and streams on over 80 channels including Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Box One, LG Smart TV and all Plex TV channels. The streamer also reaches more than 100 million online viewers monthly.
“You’ll see and hear from leading entrepreneurs building the next unicorn poised to turn TradFi (traditional finance) upside down,” said Jon Najarian, ex-Chicago Bear who along with brother Pete (ex-Tampa Bay Buccaneer and Minnesota Viking) regularly appears on CNBC’s “Halftime Report,” “Overtime,” and “Worldwide Exchange” discussing market moves, options trading and the emerging world of crypto, blockchain and the metaverse.
“As entrepreneurs and founders of Clix Inc. our team is excited to learn about the next great wave of company leaders and we’re thrilled to bring the combined wisdom - as well as blocking and tackling knowledge - of the Najarian brothers and LoPresti to our fast-growing community of video entertainment consumers,” said Clix CEO and Founder Ed Sullivan. “As Pete would say about his high-flying stock picks, 'Giddy-Up!'”
Adds Clix co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer Stacy Jolna, “Jon, Pete, and Marc are among the best in the business and their mission to partner with Clix to make sense of the marketplace chaos in a clear and entertaining way is both refreshing and critical to our consumers.”
“Collectively, the three of us have about 100 years on Wall Street,” said Pete Najarian, known as “the Pit Boss.” “Now we’re committed to bringing our experience to Clix viewers to help them become more financially independent; to ‘learn to earn’ in these volatile financial markets.”
“In addition to sharing Jon and Pete’s amazing market insights, this programming will help viewers understand the exploding crypto sector and take them behind the scenes in the closed-door world of venture capital,” said LoPresti, who along with Jon also runs Moneta Advisory Partners LLC.
The partners put their new mission into contemporary context: “The global pandemic caused people around the world to consider turning their ‘side hustle’ into their job, to try becoming entrepreneurs,” LoPresti said.
Adds Jon, “We will bring you the financial technology winners and business leaders who turned their passions into business-reality. To join us, just click on Clix. Bang!”
