TEXT OF STORY
MARK AUSTIN THOMAS: A lot of very important people are making their way to Sun Valley Idaho today. The gathering takes place every year at this time, but Marketplace’s Lisa Napoli says the event may be losing a bit of its luster.
It’s sponsored by investment bankers Allen and Company, but some say the confab is losing its luster.
Michael Wolff is the media columnist for Vanity Fair.
MICHAEL WOLFF: “It’s probably less an important event because the whole media business is coming apart.”
What with creations like YouTube and Tivo changing the way we look at media.
Still Wolff says deals continue to get done, just by virtue of the powerhouses who show up and hang out. Consider this item on the agenda:
Michael Eisner interviewing Rupert Murdoch, Barry Diller and Sir Howard Stringer.
I’m Lisa Napoli for Marketplace.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
