Charles Gabriel is the Head of Global Advertising Sales for WildBrain Spark, a premium kids and family AVOD network. Charles started his career in finance before transitioning to media, initially at Broadband Enterprises and later at 5min Media, AOL, and Maker Studios. Prior to joining WildBrain Spark, Charles served as the President of Apester and CRO of First Media U.S.

In this episode, Charles and I explore what advertising looks like in the children’s entertainment space. Charles shares best practices for ad targeting based on content rather than audience demographics, and we debate the future looks like in a world without cookies. Finally, we touch on Instagram’s latest child safety measures, Roblox going public, and the arms race for kids’ content among SVOD platforms.
