RE: Sumner Redstone to Guest On Brudnoy

Your comments are exactly what I meant by saying 'conflict of interest'. I
don't know if Brudnoy will ask tough questions of Redstone. I've got a
feeling that it will be a lovefest.

Regarding, Mel Karmazin (sp?) as rarely giving interviews - Redstone himself
has been publicity shy for years and years. Hardly anyone used to know who
he was. Nowadays, of course there are those radio ad for the New York Stock
Exchange featuring Sunmer Redstone, or is that not actually him on those ads
but a stand - in?

No, it's more like the 800 pound gorilla joke -- (where does the 800 pound
gorilla sit?  anywhere he wants to.)  Sumner Redstone and/or Mel Karmazin
are like the 800 pound gorilla-- it's their network and they can be on any
show they want to.  Mel seldom if ever does interviews,so that leaves
Sumner, who has been in the Boston market for years.  Now, a more
interesting query is, will David ask the man who signs his paycheck the
tough questions, or will it be a general lovefest?
