Talk about a good sport…more than golf claps please for CHRIS PURSELL, who has taken the terrific gig of Managing Editor of Sports for Cynthia Turner’s media empire. His informative and well put together email is perfect to go with some coffee every morning. Chris used to be with PROMAX and deserves a Well Dunne! as well as two extra points.
AMC is so hot, what with The Killing, Mad Men, Breaking Bad…and MARNIE BLACK has a hot new job…she’s the new SVP of PR for them, dealing with consumer press. She was doing her own thing PR-wise. The Barnard grad, NYC based of course, has also been SVP of Communications at MTV Networks. Well Dunne! Marnie!

Anybody else find it…uh…interesting that of the top 10 highest paid American CEO’s, no less than six (!) were media toppers? Specifically, Jeff Bewks of Time Warner @$26.1mil, Robert Iger of Disney @$28mil, Brian Roberts of Comcast @31mil, Zaslav of Discovery @ $42.6mil, Les Moonves of CBS @$56.9mil and Phillipe Dauman of Viacom coming out on top @$84.5mil. But remember, it’s not all just a paycheck on Friday. It’s a combination of perks, bonuses, preferred interest rates and stock stuff. Ohhhhkay.
Think About This: "Anyone in a state of seeking can never be happy. Only those who are constantly finding are fulfilled. And finding is not something that happens to us–it is something we do." ~ Alan Cohen
