Kim Masters and I were chock full of good banter on this week's edition of KCRW's The Business. Here's what we discussed:
- US Supreme Court says Aereo is a no-go. Broadcast networks rejoice, but how long will victory last?
- Changes at ABC News. David Muir will succeed Diane Sawyer at ‘World News.’ George Stephanopolous will stay at GMA as well as serve as the newly created position of chief anchor. Daytime, rather than evening news, seems to be the place to be.
- Paramount pulls out all the stops to make sure the opening of the newest ‘Transformers’ is a big success...in China.
- The verdict is out in the UK’s phone-hacking trial. Andy Coulson is found guilty, but no charges for Rebekah Brooks.
