More Hollywood insiders back Veoh Former Viacom executives Tom Freston and Jonathan Dolgen have joined Micheal Eisner and others as backers of viral video company Veoh Networks.
Both men are currently advisors to various media companies, including Viacom in Dolgen's case. Between them they also have quite a bit of experience running studios including Sony and Fox in addition to Viacom.

Veoh executives are hoping that adding the pair of Hollywood insiders will ultimately help them establish relationships with potential content providers.

"As Internet television is becoming an increasingly large part of viewers' media experience, it's important for traditional and new media companies to work together to deliver the most engaging content possible," said Steve Mitgang, CEO of Veoh Networks. "These new team members, along with our existing advisors, will help us build the bridges between historic and emerging media business models that are necessary to drive even more innovation and greater variety in Internet Television."

The only thing that they have going for them is the fact that they have two strong backers.
