MIKE ON KCRW: Looking at the Year Ahead in Entertainment News on "The Business" and "Press Play"

Another busy week at KCRW. On this Monday's edition of The Business, Kim Masters, Matt Belloni and I bantered about the hot entertainment biz topics coming in 2015:
- Will there be a long-term chilling effect at the studios following the Sony hack? And what's the future for Sony itself?
- China's got a lot of money, and they're looking for places to invest in Hollywood. Their continued clout has already started to influence content, and that's a trend that's likely to continue.
- The TV broadcast networks are looking to recapture a little bit of the magic following a down year. And all eyes are on Fox to see which direction they'll go following a regime change in 2014.
- Late night will look a little different this year. Stephen Colbert moving to CBS, Larry Wilmore coming to Comedy Central and Chelsea Handler will premiere her new show on Netflix.
