Video sharing platform YouTube will be cutting down significantly on its own Originals content to focus on other areas.
Chief Business Officer for the company Robert Kyncl says the company will instead focus on other initiatives such as the TikTok rival, Creator Shorts Fund, the Black Voices Fund, and its Live Shopping programming.
Going forward, the only Originals content to be produced will be from the YouTube Kids Fund and Black Voices Fund.
